"'Wherever you look these days,' wrote the German sociologists Klaus Dorre, Stephan Lessenich and Hartmut Rosa, 'the critique of capitalism has become quite fashionable.' Their book Sociology, Capitalism, Critique is not just fashionable: instead it resuscitates critical theory for new times, and takes the side of the losers in the financial crisis." - Stuart Jeffries, Guardian "An original triptych of German sociological critiques of current capitalism which deserves to be read in the anglophone world." - Goran Therborn, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, University of Cambridge "Here is the eagerly awaited translation of Dorre, Lessenich and Rosa's original diagnosis of the destructive dynamics of contemporary capitalism and its legitimation crises. Rejuvenating the great German tradition of critical theory, they offer a brilliant three-way debate that reignites both sociology and Marxism." - Michael Burawoy, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Berkeley
