This book explores the historical developments in social theory and critical theorizing about history by Michel Foucault. The book begins by explicating the major conceptual developments in American and European Social Theory. The book moves to analyze the differential theoretical approaches that arose as a direct response to historical problems of the historical world, namely social, political and economic problems. The latter part of the book explores the relevance of Foucault and some of the lessons and implications for historical social theory. (Imprint: Novinka )
