Review quote

"Reflexive Modernization is stimulating and imaginative ... all the authors raise important issues. Giddens provides a much--needed sociological discussion of the nature of tradition, which should provoke debate. Lasha s contribution is in some ways the most helpful, given his direct engagement with his co--authors and his relation of theory to a variety of evidence." Radical Philosophy "This is an attractive an original collection with much to commend ... the Giddens essay ... is elegant, smoothly written and carries lightly a vast amount of insight ... this is Giddens at his most mature and very best and explains his dominance in contemporary socialogical theory." British Journal of Sociology
