I thought I would post here about Mark Davis’ recently published book, Freedom and Consumerism: A Critique of Zygmunt Bauman’s Sociology, Ashgate 2008. Mark is the Director of the Bauman Institute and ‘creator’ of this community. He’s probably too modest to post this himself! I haven’t had a chance to look at the book so far but it has received a very favourable review in the Times Higher Education Supplement on January 29th by Prof Fred Inglis of Sheffield University. There are or course one or two minor critical points, as you would expect. This is compulsory in any review. It will be interesting to hear any comments Mark has to make.
