In Culture, Modernity and Revolution a group of distinguished sociologists and social philosophers reflect upon the major concerns of Zygmunt Bauman. Their essays not only honour the man, but provide important contributions to the three interlinked themes that could be said to form the guiding threads of Bauman's life work: power, culture and modernity. Culture, Modernity and Revolution is both a remarkable sociological commentary on the problems facing East-Central Europe and an exposition of some of the key, hitherto neglected, features of the modern cultural universe.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It is ironic that at the moment that the post-communist east looks to the west for the model of modernization it is at last free to follow, the west displays the uncertainties of post-modernity. Zygmunt Bauman has long commented on west and east with an independence of mind that has won rare respect. It is thus fitting that Kilminster and Varcoe should have secured essays which really do honour him by addressing so perceptively life in our time."
-Chris Bryant, University of Salford
"Varcoe and Kilminster have put together an important set of essays on the central concerns of one of Europe's major social theorists, and have sandwiched these essays together between a very useful introduction and conclusion. Sociologists familiar with the work of Zygmunt Bauman will find much of value here and will feel that this collection does justice to the life's work of an important sociologist."
-Stephen K. Sanderson, Indiana University of Pennsylvania
