“Remaking Modernity is the best representation available of the large and excellent generation of American historical sociologists now becoming prominent in the discipline.”—Craig Calhoun, President of the Social Science Research Council — N/A
“Here, all in one volume, is the best of the rising generation of historical sociologists, applying their craft to themselves, reflecting on their antecedents in order to chart our discipline’s futures. Ranging across multiple fields, wrestling with the Marxist-inspired iconoclasm of second-wave historical sociology, this is sure to become a definitive text of the third wave.”—Michael Burawoy, University of California, Berkeley — N/A

The contributors represent a wide variety of theoretical orientations and a broad spectrum of understandings of what constitutes historical sociology. They address such topics as religion, war, citizenship, markets, professions, gender and welfare, colonialism, ethnicity, bureaucracy, revolutions, collective action, and the modernist social sciences themselves. Remaking Modernity includes a significant introduction in which the editors consider prior orientations in historical sociology in order to analyze the field’s resurgence. They show how current research is building on and challenging previous work through attention to institutionalism, rational choice, the cultural turn, feminist theories and approaches, and colonialism and the racial formations of empire.
