'Final year undergraduates, research students and researchers seeking an alternative to positivism or relativism are likely to find Explaining Society useful, as the authors are active researchers themselves and are alive to the kinds of questions their audience are likely to ask ... the authors write clearly and do not make the common mistake of purporting to write for students and researchers while actually writing over their heads for fellow philosophers.' - Journal of Critical Realism 1:1 Nov 2002
