  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Culture as Praxisby Zygmunt Bauman

    SAGE Publications 1998; US$ 59.00

    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.

    The term ‘collateral damage' has recently been added to thevocabulary of military forces to refer to the unintendedconsequences of armed interventions, consequences that areunplanned but nevertheless damaging and often very costly in humanand personal terms.

  • 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...

  • Communityby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 19.95

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

The space between these two fronts, untilrecently ruled by the sovereign nation-state and identified bysocial scientists as ‘society'... more...
