"This is still the best dictionary around ... Students could abandon their textbooks and follow this reference trail." Margaret Archer, University of Warwick "A reference book that is fun to read, often sharp, ironic, and barbed - a distillation of current Social Thought as well as a dictionary." Stephen Turner, University of South Florida "This book is an indispensable tool for social, political, and intellectual inquiry in general. William Outhwaite has produced a valuable compendium of the key figures, central concepts, influential movements, and important institutions of the modern era. The sum impressively surpasses not only the parts but the peer competitors." James Der Derian, Brown University and University of Massachusetts Amherst "Students new to the volume will find it remains a valuable guide." David Jary, University of Birmingham "All academic libraries catering for courses in scoiology, politics modern history, cultural studies or philosophy ought to have copies of this book."
