"[Hopenhayn's] arguments are well reasoned and researched and extremely effective. A single reading of these essays gives one a much clearer understanding of the sociopolitical situation in Latin America. We may hope that his ecumenical approach will be incorporated into the current program for change in Latin America." — Kevin Gosa , Latin American Perspectives
"[I]nteresting. . . . [E]ven readers with little prior knowledge can get a glimpse of how important social theory and academic production are in the rest of the Americas and catch a glimpse of what will be history, the present mood Latin America, and the search for new answers."
— Joshua Rosenthal , History: Review of New Books
"[T]houghtful and insightful. . . . [I]t is certainly most welcome to see Martín Hopenhayn's writing more widely available in English." — Ronaldo Munck, Bulletin of Latin American Research
"Hopenhayn's work advances an insightful and productive outline for understanding contemporary Latin American social conditions, especially in relation to influential discursive traditions that range from utopian thinking to conceptions of the state. . . . Bringing his recent publications together in one volume for an English-reading audience provides a detailed, carefully constructed panorama of Hopenhayn's thought that succeeds in reconsidering and revitalizing previous paradigms for understanding Latin America." — Ryan Long , Latin American Research Review
[A] superbly written book. . . . In a mad and inhumane world where apologists of neoliberalism and globalism resort to beguiling rationalizations to justify injustice and inequality on a global scale, Martin Hopenhayn's thought-provoking book is a breath of fresh air that will be influential for decades. Intended for the informed reader, No Apocalypse, No Integration will have a far-reaching influence on how social scientists frame epistemological, political, and social issues, and how to assess the state's role in the post-cold war era." — Jon V. Kofas , Contemporary Sociology
“No Apocalypse, No Integration is the most sustained examination to date of the consequences of postmodernity for Latin American social theory and public policy.” — John Beverley, University of Pittsburgh
“This extremely thought-provoking book on the current crisis of Latin American social science and the ongoing changes in Latin American state formations is highly readable, well informed, and well argued.” — Alberto Moreiras, Duke University
