Item description for Creativity and Critique (Social and Critical Theory) by Ballantyne & G....
Constructing a dialogue between the social theory of Alain Touraine and the philosophy of Paul Ricoeur, this work locates the wellsprings of the renewed intepretative powers of Touraine's recent sociology of the subject and critique of modernity in an implicit and unfinished, but unmistakable 'hermeneutical turn'.

Packaging and shipping might have let the bookseller / me down May 21, 2010
This book was advertised as "Used - as new" for a very reasonable price. When I received the book, I came under the impression that this description was most probably accurate before shipping (International). However, the book was VERY tightly wrapped in plastic. Although this was, quite ironically, most likely due to an attempt to protect the book against any bumpage etc; the actual effect was that the bottom edges AND the bottom of all the pages of the book were VERY bent and creased (for those familiar with the very sturdy hardcover of Brill Publisher books, the bending and disintegrating of the edges would be even more surprising). I am still of the opinion that the price that I purchased this book at is reasonable given the latter (and that the description given before packaging was most probably accurate - I am not questioning the integrity of the bookseller). However, I was still slightly disappointed in its condition when receiving the book, and I recommend some more attention to be paid to the packaging.
