- Zed Books 2013; US$ 26.95
In this groundbreaking book, John Urry shows how the twentieth century created a mirage of unlimited future growth that masked its limits. He considers the nature of an oil-dependent world facing energy descent and what lessons can be learnt from past energy-constrained societies. With no large-scale plan B to energize and mobilize societies, Urry... more...

In this ground-breaking contribution to social theory, John Urry argues that the traditional basis of sociology - the study of society - is outmoded in an increasingly borderless world. If sociology is to make a pertinent contribution to the post societal era it must forget the social rigidities of the pre-global order and, instead, switch its focus... more...

First published in 1973, this is a reissue of John Urry's important and influential study of the theory of revolution.

The concealment of income, wealth and profits in tax havens has brought the topic of offshoring into public debate, but as John Urry shows in this important new book offshoring is a much more pervasive feature of contemporary societies. These often secretive activities offshore also involve relations of work, finance, pleasure, waste, energy and security.... more...

Voici un manifeste pour une sociologie des mobilités. Selon son auteur, tout un ensemble de transformations - rassemblées sous la notion de mobilité - a fini par dépouiller de leur pertinence l'image de la société et les modèles d'analyse construits par les fondateurs de la sociologie. L'ambition n'est donc pas mince : il s'agit pour Urry de rien... more...

It is becoming ever clearer that while people tour cultures, cultures and objects themselves are in a constant state of migration. This collection brings together some of the most influential writers in the field to examine the complex connections between tourism and cultural change and the relevance of tourist experience to current theoretical debates... more...
- SAGE Publications 2001; US$ 40.00
This book examines the embodied nature of people's experience in, and of, the modern world. It is therefore part of the deep-seated `turn towards the body', which has been such a pronounced feature of sociology in the last two decades. The book argues that bodies in nature are subject to novel, complex and contradictory opportunities of freedom and... more...
- Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 139.95

- SAGE Publications 1993; US$ 66.00
Developing a comparative analysis of the UK and US, the new Germany and Japan, Lash and Urry show how restructuration after organized capitalism has its basis in increasingly reflexive social actors and organizations. The consequence is not only the much-vaunted 'postmodern condition' but also a growth in reflexivity. more...
