Contemporary Sociology reviews Socialism and Modernity

Review of Socialism and Modernity by Peter Beilharz in Contemporary Sociology.

This collection provides an intriguing set of thirteen vignettes published between 1985 and 2004 (plus a highly illuminating and very helpful introductory chapter written specifically for this volume) that track the decline and transformation of socialism since the 1980s, and the shift in social theory from capitalism to modernity as the focal point of critique. The essays were written by Peter Beilharz, a sociologist who is both a social theorist and labor and social historian, and the author and editor of many books and dozens of articles who also was a cofounder and currently is a co-editor of the journal, Thesis Eleven.
