Pressestimmen

"Few other sociologists have addressed the question of the postmodern with the breadth of imagination and vision that Bauman can muster. This book steers a careful course between the twin excesses of instant dismissal postmodernism as something to be "against" and thoughtless adoption postmodernism as something to be "celebrated." It is a fine book which exemplifies Bauman at his brilliant best."
