A critical analysis

Ali Rattansi

  • Provides the first single-authored critique of Zygmunt Bauman's most important texts, tackling issues of the Holocaust, postmodernity, consumerism and globalization
  • Contains an overview of the main continuities in Zygmunt Bauman's version of critical social thought
