  • State of Crisisby Zygmunt Bauman; Carlo Bordoni

    Wiley 2014; US$ 64.95

    Today we hear much talk of crisis and comparisons are often made with the Great Depression of the 1930s, but there is a crucial difference that sets our current malaise apart from the 1930s: today we no longer trust in the capacity of the state to resolve the crisis and to chart a new way forward. In our increasingly globalized world, states have been... more...

  • Intimations of Postmodernityby Zygmunt Bauman

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 67.95

    This thoughtful and illuminating book provides a major statement on the meaning and importance of postmodernity. more...

  • Work, Consumerism and the New Poorby Zygmunt Bauman

    McGraw-Hill Education 2007; US$ 46.00

    It is one thing to be poor in a society of producers and universal employment; it is quite a different thing to be poor in a society of consumers, in which life projects are built around consumer choices rather than on work, professional skills or jobs. Where `being poor'' was once linked to being unemployed, today it draws its meaning primarily from... more...

  • Towards a Critical Sociology (Routledge Revivals)by Zygmunt Bauman

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 49.95

    For the better part of its history sociology shared with commonsense its assumption of the ?nature-like? character of society ? and consequently developed as the science of unfreedom. In this powerful and engaging work, first published in 1976, Professor Bauman outlines the historical roots of such a science and describes how the new trends in sociology... more...

  • Memories of Class (Routledge Revivals)by Zygmunt Bauman

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 49.95

    First published in 1982, Professor Bauman?s discussion of the mechanism of class formation and institutionalisation of class conflict argues that our understanding of changes in social and political structure has been hindered by the freezing of concepts of class in the ice-age of industrial society. He investigates the impact of historical memory... more...

  • Socialism the Active Utopia (Routledge Revivals)by Zygmunt Bauman

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 49.95

    Rather than contributing to the long-standing discussion about the characteristics of the society that socialism proposes to establish, this Routledge Revival, initially published in 1976, aims to explore the impact of the ?living utopia? of socialism on the development of modern society. It begins with an analysis of the role of utopia in... more...

  • Hermeneutics and Social Science (Routledge Revivals)by Zygmunt Bauman

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 49.95

    Originally published in 1978, this important work, by one of the leading European social theorists, is arguably the best introduction to the hermeneutic tradition as a whole. It is designed to help students of sociology and philosophy place the problems of "understanding social science" in their historical and philosophical context. It does so by... more...

  • Collateral Damageby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 19.95

    The term ‘collateral damage' has recently been added to the vocabulary of military forces to refer to the unintended consequences of armed interventions, consequences that are unplanned but nevertheless damaging and often very costly in human and personal terms. But collateral damage is not unique to the world of armed intervention - it is also... more...

  • Liquid Timesby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 14.95

    The passage from 'solid' to 'liquid' modernity has created a new and unprecedented setting for individual life pursuits, confronting individuals with a series of challenges never before encountered. Social forms and institutions no longer have enough time to solidify and cannot serve as frames of reference for human actions and long-term life plans,... more...

  • Liquid Fearby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 19.95

    Modernity was supposed to be the period in human history when the fears that pervaded social life in the past could be left behind and human beings could at last take control of their lives and tame the uncontrolled forces of the social and natural worlds. And yet, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, we live again in a time of fear. Whether its... more...
