Synopsis

Zygmunt Bauman Dialectic of Modernity by Peter Beilharz

This measured and thoughtful book provides a comprehensive critical commentary on Bauman's social theory. It explores the roots of his ideas in questions of capital and labour, and explains how these ideas flourished in Bauman's later writings on culture, intellectuals, utopia, the holocaust, modernity and postmodernism. Bauman's work has been wide-ranging and ambitious. This book fulfils the objective of providing an authoritative critical guide to this essential thinker.

Reviews

`Written in an accessible manner and organized in a way that should prove helpful to readers not familiar with Bauman, this book provides a straightforward way in to the rich range of concerns to be found in Bauman's work' - Barry Smart, Professor of Sociology, University of Portsmouth

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!
