Review quote

"Tucker reconsiders the sociology of the public sphere by viewing it through the lens of performativity. Such a perspective highlights the ways that public spheres 'aestheticize' daily life and make possible new forms of subjectivity and collective life. What is especially impressive about this book is that Tucker develops his ideas at both an analytical and empirical level. The notions of the public sphere and civil society are today integral to debates about democracy and social change in both the academe and among activists. Tucker offers an original statement that is both compelling and important." -Steven Seidman, SUNY Albany
