The metaphor ofMoreZygmunt Baumans liquid sociology confronts the awesome task of reminding individual men and women that an alternative way of living together is within our eminent capabilities, if only we start to think differently about our world. The metaphor of liquidity, which has become such a prominent feature of his writings since 2000, provides us with just such a new interpretation, with a novel way of seeing.

Each chapter in this unique collection takes seriously Baumans analysis of modernity as liquid, throwing new light upon global social problems, as well as opening up a space for assessing the nature of Baumans contribution to sociology, and for understanding what may be gained and lost by embracing an artistic sensibility within the social sciences. With contributions from internationally renowned scholars, this book will appeal to all those interested in Baumans work, especially within sociology, social, political and cultural theory, and to anyone curious about the value of metaphor in interpreting the social world.
