Zygmunt Bauman, one of the most admired social thinkers of our time, seeks to liberate us from the thinking that renders us hopeless in the face of our own domineering governments and threats from unkwn forces abroad. He shows us we can give up belief in a hierarchical arrangement of states and powers. He challenges members of the 'kwledge class' to overcome their estrangement from the rest of society. Gracefully, provocatively, Bauman urges us to think in new ways about a newly flexible, newly challenging modern world. As Bauman tes, quoting Vaclav Havel, 'hope is t a progstication'. It is, alongside courage and will, a mundane, common weapon that is too seldom used.
Zygmunt Bauman is Emeritus Professor of Sociology, University of Leeds, and the author of many books.
