  • 44 Letters From the Liquid Modern Worldby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 64.95

    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...

  • The Art of Lifeby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 64.95

    In our individualized society we are all artists of life - whether we know it or not, will it or not and like it or not, by decree of society if not by our own choice. In this society we are all expected, rightly or wrongly, to give our lives purpose and form by using our own skills and resources, even if we lack the tools and materials with which... more...

  • Collateral Damageby Zygmunt Bauman

    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...

  • Communityby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 64.95

    'Community' is one of those words that feels good: it is good 'to have a community', 'to be in a community'. And 'community' feels good because of the meanings which the word conveys, all of them promising pleasures, and more often than not the kind of pleasures which we would like to experience but seem to miss. 'Community' conveys the image... more...

  • Consuming Lifeby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 64.95

    With the advent of liquid modernity, the society of producers is transformed into a society of consumers. In this new consumer society, individuals become simultaneously the promoters of commodities and the commodities they promote. They are, at one and the same time, the merchandise and the marketer, the goods and the travelling salespeople. They... more...

  • Culture as Praxisby Zygmunt Bauman

    SAGE Publications 1998; US$ 47.00

    In this major work, Zygmunt Bauman classifies the meanings of culture. For Bauman, culture is a living, changing aspect of human interaction which must be understood and studied as a universal of human life. At the heart of his approach is the proposition that culture is inherently ambivalent. more...

  • Does the Richness of the Few Benefit Us Allby 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...

  • Europeby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 54.95

    More than ever before, our conflict-ridden, drifting planet needs the qualities that Europe, unique among the continents, has developed in more than two millennia of history: its self-criticism, its urge to self-transcendence, exploration and experiment, its conviction that alternative and better forms of human togetherness can be achieved, as well... more...

  • Globalizationby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 24.95

    'Globalization' is a word that is currently much in use. This book is an attempt to show that there is far more to globalization than its surface manifestations. Unpacking the social roots and social consequences of globalizing processes, this book disperses some of the mist that surrounds the term. Alongside the emerging planetary dimensions... 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...
