Derek Robbins is at the top of his game and this book makes a telling - if controversial - contribution to our understanding of the circulation of French social theory into Britain and America. In doing so, it has introduced a subtle new dimension of the sociology of knowledge, showing how ideas and concepts may become torn out of their original historical context and reframed to fit different political or theoretical interests.
Derek Robbins has shown once again that he is one of the few Anglophone scholars with an exceptionally profound and impressively comprehensive knowledge of the history of modern European social thought. This book is a must for anybody interested in twentieth-century French social theory.
