Original black cloth on boards. Unclipped DJ very good. Apparently the aim of the book is to bring some new names to the fore of the field of social and political theory. I started to read it, but bogged down before completing the first chapter on Thomas Carlyle. I believe the part of the book to which I was exposed could have been improved by careful editing. If I were doing it I would have shortened sentences by doing away with so many strings of dependent clauses. 217 pp. including index. View more info
