"Social Acceleration: A New Theory of Modernity." Hartmut Rosa. Columbia University Press. July 2013. --- In Social Acceleration, Hartmut Rosa considers the quickening tempo of modern social life, arguing that our institutions and practices are marked by the shrinking of the present.The book is gracefully written and convincingly argued, writes Kye Barker, and it seems that critical theory still has quite a bit to tell us about the way we live today.
