Making History is about the question-central to social theory-of how human agents draw their powers from the social structures they are involved in. Drawing on classical Marxism, analytical philosophy and a wide range of historical writings, Alex Callinicos seeks to avoid two unacceptable extremes-dissolving the subject into an impersonal flux, as post structuralists tend to-and treating social structures as the mere effects of individual action (for example, rational-choice theory). Among those discussed are Althusser, Anderson, Benjamin, Brenner, Cohen, Elster, Foucault, Giddens, Habermas and Mann. Callinicos has written an extended introduction to this new edition that reviews developments since Making History was first published in 1987. This republication gives a new generation of readers access to an important intervention in Marxism and social theory. Printed Pages: 341. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 89020
