About the Author

Norbert Ebert is Lecturer in Sociology at Macquarie University, Australia.


'In an age when birth and place could largely fix one for life, individualisation was a radical emancipation enabling one to be other than where one was from. In late modernity we have all become individuals. Individualisation is now an ideology and a productive force reproducing a largely deregulated economic system institutionally, organisationally and normatively. This book, in a classic tradition of sociological theorising, explores and critiques the complex contours of contemporary individualisation in a theoretically sophisticated, yet accessible, and empirically informed manner.' Stewart Clegg, University of Technology Business School, Sydney, Australia 'The author's ability to bridge the gap between the big picture of contemporary capitalism and the emergence of individualisation is impressive. I suspect C Wright Mills would have been pleased with this example of the "Sociological Imagination" at work." Stuart Rees, University of Sydney, Australia 'This is a rich and thoughtful contribution to the debate on the contemporary state and role of individualisation. It is original and significant, transparently structured, coherently argued and well presented.' Irmingard Staeuble, Freie Universitat Berlin, Germany
