  • Practices of Selfhoodby Zygmunt Bauman; Rein Raud

    Wiley 2015; US$ 64.95

    Contemporary understanding of human subjectivity has come a long way since the Cartesian 'thinking thing' or Freud's view of the self struggling with its unconscious. We no longer think of ourselves as stable and indivisible units or combinations thereof - instead, we see the self as constantly reinvented and reorganised in interaction with others... 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$ 54.95

    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$ 54.95

    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$ 54.95

    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$ 54.95

    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...

  • Does the Richness of the Few Benefit Us All?by Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 12.95

    It is commonly assumed that the best way to help the poor out of their misery is to allow the rich to get richer, that if the rich pay less taxes then all the rest of us will be better off, and that in the final analysis the richness of the few benefits us all. And yet these commonly held beliefs are flatly contradicted by our daily experience, an... more...

  • Les riches font-ils le bonheur de tous ?by Zygmunt Bauman

    Armand Colin 2014; Not Available

    Notre monde n?a jamais été aussi riche ni si inégalitaire. N?en déplaise aux fondamentalistes de la croissance économique, le fossé continue de se creuser entre les uns, de plus en plus riches, et les autres, de plus en plus pauvres. À l?heure actuelle, une infime minorité de la population mondiale concentre près de la moitié des richesses totales.... more...

  • Liquid Loveby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 19.95

    This book is about the central figure of our contemporary, 'liquid modern' times - the man or woman with no bonds, and particularly with none of the fixed or durable bonds that would allow the effort of self-definition and self-assertion to come to a rest. Having no permanent bonds, the denizen of our liquid modern society must tie whatever bonds they... more...
