"Compelling reading; and as a contribution to the social sciences it deserves to be widely read." Times Literary Supplement "A golden treasury of theory" Eric Banks, Bookforum "Verso's beautifully designed Radical Thinkers series, which brings together seminal works by leading left-wing intellectuals, is a sophisticated blend of theory and thought. The 12 authors whose writings are included in the series have worked tirelessly to expose the mechanisms by which culture and knowledge are manufactured, managed and controlled." Ziauddin Sardar, New Statesman"
