The book reflects the diversity and interdisciplinary character of social theory in the contemporary world, providing an international group of eminent scholars with a forum in which they address some of the central issues in modern social and political thought: the revival of Marxism and its relevance to the social sciences, the analysis of social and political structures and social movements (in particular the labour movement), and the future of advanced capitalist societies. The contributors are: Zygmunt Bauman, Kurt M. Wolff, Roy Edgley, Ernest Gellner, Istvan Meszaros, Stephen Yeo, Ronald P. Dore, Christopher Thorne, Paul Q. Hirst, Ralph Miliband, Peter Lloyd, Robert J. Brym, Alain Touraine.
