About the Author

Zygmunt Bauman (1925-2017) was Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Leeds.


'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 provocative, interesting, and engaging book is recommended for upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty.' Choice

"His work is essential reading for those political theorists who feel part of their task is to elaborate relevant and compelling normative critique." Contemporary Political Theory
