Description - Social Theory and Postcommunism by William Outhwaite

Social Theory and Postcommunism is a unique, well-written, and accessible text that analyzes the implications of the fall of communism on social theory. Written by two leading social theorists, the book discusses the thesis that the fall of communism has decimated alternative conceptions of social organizations other than capitalism. By undertaking a thorough study of the implications of post-Communism for sociological theory, it reviews almost every key issue which currently occupies social theory: state/civil society, globalization, the future of "modernity," and postsocialism. Outhwaite and Ray cover such issues while still referencing older traditions, such as the modernization theory. With clarity, insight, and authority, this book presents a new understanding of social theory for the student or scholar.
