Bauman is an immensely prolific writer and his early work, in particular, can be very demanding of the reader. This book presents a wide range of important, lively and engaging readings, aiming to capture the originality of Bauman's special way of doing sociology and all the complexity of his core ideas, in a way that connects with twenty-first century minds. It is an ideal student introduction to Bauman's work, offering a mix of book chapters and essay discussions, excerpts from interviews and snapshots on life from Bauman's pocket books. The ultimate aim of the reader is to show students how to 'think sociologically' with Bauman. Organized in four parts, with a substantive introduction by the editor, the volume closes with an epilogue from Bauman himself.
