Why has sleep become increasingly politicized in contemporary society? This book provides an account of the politics of sleep in the late modern age. The future of sleep has become contested and uncertain: something to be defended, downsized or even perhaps (one day) done away with altogether.

"This carefully crafted book is beautifully written, providing an elegant and convincing argument of relevance for sociologists of health and illness, as well as sociologists of the body and those interested in broader structural issues associated with global capitalism." - Sociology of Health and Illness
