": "Even those of us who disagree with Nancy Fraser on substantive questions recognize her ability to illuminate the conflicting demands, hopes and sufferings of our time. With the capacity to learn by dialogue, an analytically sharp mind and a stunning synthetic ability, she is among the very few thinkers in the tradition of critical theory who are capable of redeeming its legacy in the 21st century." Axel Honneth, J. W. Goethe-Universitat "This book demonstrates the extent to which Nancy Fraser's work, for more than a decade now, has contributed to reframing the agenda of critical theory...In today's relatively dark times for equality and liberties around the world, Adding Insult to Injury provides a singular stimulation." Etienne Balibar, University of California"
