Critique: Jürgen Habermas has been awarded the prestigious?Friedenspreis des deutschen Buchhandels? prize for 2001

?The Reader gains a firm appreciation of how Habermas?s socialtheory applies to political realities ... These new books byHabermas will be indispensable for years to come [and will]undoubtedly make provocative reading.? Anthony Elliott, TheAustralian

?Habermas is that rare mixture of respected scholar and publicintellectual. [This book] is one of his most accessible to date ...[it] is an impressive collection of essays on political issues ofthe day ... More generally, the book contains the thoughts of agreat European intellectual of the Left who has not lost his nerve.And for this alone it is worth the money. After the ?debate? inNorthern Ireland and the general lack of understanding in somecircles, our political class could use a few copies.?Fortnight
