  • 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.

  • This is not a Diaryby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 19.95

    This is not a diary: while these observations were recorded in autumn 2010 and spring 2011 in the form of dated entries, they are not a personal reflection but an attempt to capture signs of our times in their movement - possibly at birth, at a stage when they are still barely perceptible, and in any case before they have matured into common,... 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...

  • Liquid Loveby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 69.95

    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...

  • 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 of... more...

  • Society under Siegeby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 69.95

    Society is under siege – under attack on two fronts: from the global frontier-land where old structures and rules do not hold and new ones are slow to take shape, and from the fluid, undefined domain of life politics. The space between these two fronts, until recently ruled by the sovereign nation-state and identified by social scientists as... more...
