Ben Agger introduces students to the Frankfurt School, postmodernism, theories of multiculturalism and difference, feminist theory, and cultural studies. Arguing for an integration of these theories, Critical Social Theories is a useful supplement to social theory texts. Throughout the book, Agger considers implications of critical social theory, making the book highly relevant to mainstream sociologists seeking theoretical guidance."@en ;
