Zygmunt Bauman is one of the giants of twentieth-century social thought. What are his key ideas? How can we understand his work in relation to broader social theory? Why is his work so significant?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.

`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
