Ideology and Cultural Identity Modernity and the Third World Presence Press Reviews

'Larrain's study is a very useful survey of recent developments in the critique of ideology.' Choice 'Larrain's work is a pleasure to read: tentative and humane, he employs a concept of ideology derived from but not entirely concident with that of Marx to offer a critical examination of the complacency and complicity of much contemporary discussion of ideology.' Political Studies '... He analyses what he has always analysed very well - namely, the history of the concept of ideology from Schopenhauer and Nietzsche, Pareto et al., through Marx and Engels to Althusser, post-structuralism, postmodernism and Habermas.' Radical Philosophy
