Dialectic of Modernity

First Edition
  • Peter Beilharz - Curtin University, Australia, La Trobe University, Australia

February 2000 | 192 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
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.
