"Written with the author's customary elegance and economy, this book invites us to take the concept of society seriously and to think about its future. This is a splendid and spirited work which will provoke a necessary debate." Krishan Kumar, University of Virginia "An original, challenging, and timely defense of the concept of society, this is an excellent introduction to contemporary sources and debates." David Frisby, London School of Economics "A subtle defense of the concept of 'society' in the third millennium. Outhwaite convincingly undermines zero-sum thinking about the emergence of global society." Margaret S. Archer, University of Warwick
