Description

This work sets out and exemplifies a new approach to social theory. While departing radically from classical Marxist thought, it directly engages with many of the most important issues in contemporary social and political theory, and offers a way forward for a new and revitalized Marxist tradition. "Social Theory After Postmodernism" returns to the same concern with law that marked the work of the classical sociological theorists, and which has been neglected since their passing. Through a deconstructive rethinking of the central concepts of "production", "law" and "class" he demonstrates ways in which a transformed Marxism can take on board and benefit from postmodernism and deconstruction without lapsing into post-Marxism.show more
