In this textbook, Bauman addresses the problem of thinking sociologically. Through an examination of the underlying assumptions and tacit expectations which structure people's view of the world, Bausman aims to elucidate key concepts in sociology, from individualism and community to privilege and deprivation. The author also offers the reader a succession of exemplary instances of thinking sociologically.

In this lucid, stimulating and original book, Zygmunt Bauman and Tim May explore the underlying assumptions and tacit expectations which structure our view of the world. The authors elucidate key concepts in sociology: for example, individualism versus community, and privilege versus deprivation. While charting a course through sociology's main concerns, Bauman and May also examine the applicability of sociology to everyday life.
This volume is a completely revised and expanded edition that includes new materials on health and fitness, intimacy, time, space and disorder, risk, globalization, identity, organizations, and new technologies. It was written for the benefit and enjoyment of students, professional sociologists and social scientists, and anyone else interested in the dynamics and issues that structure everyday life.
