Zygmunt Bauman has written more than seventy books over five
decades, most taking a single subject and finding doors to open it
in all directions. His work is an essential reference point in
sociology, but it is time that everyone caught up with him. In this
book Tony Blackshaw doesn't just tell us that Bauman is a massive
star in sociology, he demonstrates why his light shines brighter
than that of almost any other intellectual figure in the world
today by offering his readers deep insights into the 'Bauman
Effect'. The new Bauman reader is two books in one. On the one
hand, it is a critical introduction to a vital and inspiring
sociologist who stands against the predictable in 'majority'
sociology to draw out daring and new insights from which we can all
learn. On the other, it is an anthology of his work chosen with the
specific aim of guiding readers, whether undergraduates,
postgraduates, academics or general readers to Bauman's original
way of 'thinking sociologically', which is as irresistible as the
'liquid' metaphor that guides it. -- .
