Zygmunt Bauman (1925-2017) was Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the Universities of Leeds and Warsaw. He is the author of a number of other books including the extremely successful Modernity and the Holocaust (Polity, 1989) which won the 1989 European Amalfi Prize for Sociology and Social Theory, and Modernity and Ambivalence (Polity, 1991). He was also awarded the Theodor W. Adorno prize for 1998.

Reviews

'Characteristically perceptive ... this indispensable book shines harsh X-rays through the western body politic to reveal a skeleton in the closet of recent social history.' New Statesman and Society 'A brilliant, outstanding book.' Manna 'A fascinating, and at times novel, interpretation of the cultural meanings of death.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'Bauman's work taken as a whole adds up to a formidable analysis and critique of modernity and its complement.' Social History of Medicine 'Those who find pleasure ... in decoding the references, in pursuing ideas in a playful way, in enjoying once again the old academic wit and style, in exposing contradictions in our feeble settlements and cultural rapprochernents will enjoy it enormously.' Reviewing Sociology
