About the Author

Luke Goode is Associate Professor in the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Auckland. He is the author of Jurgen Habermas (Pluto, 2005).


'This is an excellent, useful book.' Don Mitchell, Department of Geography, Syracuse University'Habermas's concept of the public sphere has been of great significance since he first introduced it more than 40 years ago in The Structural Transformation of the Public Sphere. In the intervening years it has been much attacked and sometimes even dismissed as passe but its importance persists, not least in the current debates about democracy and citizenship. For more advanced undergraduates, though, and for scholars of communication, democracy and citizenship, in particular, who are seeking a clear and critical overview of the Habermasian public sphere, this is a valuable and timely book.'David Sullivan, Political Studies Review
