"Very well written, readily accessible and largely free of jargon. There is no other single work on critical theory that offers such a unique range of thinkers and their ideas.-Mort Schoolman, SUNY Albany." "A fine and probing piece of theoretical scholarship." -- Contemporary Sociology "Of Critical Theory and Its Theorists does not disappoint . . . A compelling account of the history of critical theory and a useful guide for advanced graduate students and scholars. Bronner's understanding of the dialectical method is exemplary, and his explanation of it is excellent. A remarkable work." -- Critical Sociology "Has the foundation of critical theory been withdrawn with the collapse of communism? Stephen Eric Bronner argues the opposite: only now, liberated from marxian dogmatism, can a genuine critique of modern society begin. He develops his ideas in an immanent and emancipatory confrontation with critical theory and its proponents. A brilliant book! Don't miss it!" -- Ulrich Beck
