"This superb book, which has been essential reading since its original publication, now includes a major new introductory chapter, covering theories of globalization and multiple modernity's. Kumar manages to to be judicious and provocative, comprehensive and clear, and magisterial and readable. The book is an indispensable guide to these highly contested yet inescapable attempts to theorize modern societies." William Outhwaite, University of Sussex "From Post--Industrial to Post Modern Society has established itself as an incomparable classic of modern sociology. The second edition extends the range of the original text to address new problems of globalism, and thereby integrates the globalization debate into concerns about post--modernity. A singular achievement." Bryan Turner, Cambrige University.
