  • 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.

  • Mortality, Immortality and Other Life Strategiesby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 28.50

    Zygmunt Bauman's new book is a brilliant exploration, from a sociological point of view, of the 'taboo' subject in modern societies: death and dying.

The hypothesis explored in the book is that the necessity of human... more...

  • Culture as Praxisby Zygmunt Bauman

    SAGE Publications 1998; US$ 59.00

    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...

    Wiley 2013; US$ 64.95

    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...

    This liquid modern world of ours, like all liquids, cannot stand still and keep its shape for long. Everything keeps changing - the fashions we follow, the events that intermittently catch our attention, the things we dream of and things we fear. And we, the inhabitants of this world in flux, feel the need to adjust to its tempo by being ‘flexible'... more...
