About the Author

Zygmunt Bauman is Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the Universities of Leeds and Warsaw.


"These books mark an important advance in Bauman's project. He seems to be trying to bring the intellectuals back into the game, twitting them for their passivity. Bauman wants social critics to take a more active role, taking a lead by showing how the relationships between individuals and society and between the private and public spheres may be rearticulated and the spirit of the agora restored to social and political life."
British Journal of Sociology
"This book is an example of what social thought can be when it is carried out in terms of the highest of qualities. As such, it demands to be read for two reasons; first, because of the fascinating and new light it casts on otherwise well-worn debates and second, as a call to arms."
Contemporary Sociology
"Bauman's argument is convincing and well substantiated. This book forms an interesting and stimulating starting point for anyone wishing to dig deeper into this field".
Gary Pattison, University of Southampton. Network
