Abstract

"Social Theory and Postcommunism" undertakes a thorough study of the implications of post-communism for sociological 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. It analyzes the implications of the fall of communism on social theory. It discusses alternative ideas of social organizations other than capitalism, in the wake of the collapse of communism. It covers state/civil society, globalization, the future of 'modernity', and post-socialism.
