Actor network theory and after / edited by John Law and John Hassard.

Oxford [England] ; Malden, MA : Blackwell/Sociological Review, 1999.

Abstract: Actor network theory is a powerful approach which combines the insights of post--structuralism with an analysis of the materials of social life. This controversial and path--breaking volume extends ANT beyond studies of technology, power and organisation to the body, subjectivity, politics, and cultural difference, and puts it into cutting--edge dialogue with feminism, anthropology, psychology and economics.

Augustine, Saint, Bishop of Hippo.

The pilgrim city : social and political ideas in the writings of St. Augustine of Hippo / [edited] by R.W. Dyson.

Woodbridge, Suffolk, UK ; Rochester, NY : Boydell Press, 2001.

Abstract: The political and social ideas of St Augustine of Hippo are of central importance to the historian of late classical and medieval political thought: Augustine offers a penetrating critique of the moral and political claims of imperial Rome, and he is one of the founders of the Christian political thought of the middle ages. But the student's task is made difficult by the fact that Augustine did not write a single, systematic political treatise. His political remarks are always incidental to his theological and pastoral concerns; they occur in many different contexts; they have to be dissected out from a great variety of works. In this volume, Dr Dyson brings together an extensive selection of primary sources and provides a detailed commentary on them. The result is a full and wide-ranging narrative account of St Augustine's thinking on the human condition, justice, the State, slavery, private property and war. This comprehensive sourcebook will be of value to students of St Augustine at all levels. Dr R W Dyson lectures in the department of politics, University of Durham.
