Synopsis: This important Manifesto argues that we still need a concept of society in order to make sense of the forces which structure our lives.

  • Written by leading social theorist William Outhwaite
  • Asks if the notion of society is relevant in the twenty-first century
  • Goes to the heart of contemporary social and political debate
  • Examines critiques of the concept of society from neoliberals, postmodernists, and globalization theorists

From the Back Cover: Is the notion of society obsolete?


To answer this question, leading social theorist William Outhwaite first considers various critiques of the concept that have dominated recent debate, including the arguments of:



  • Neo-liberals, who deny society's existence
  • Postmodernists, who argue that it has fragmented or dissolved
  • Globalization theorists, who claim that it cannot survive the demise of the nation-state.


Outhwaite takes a sympathetic look at these current theoretical trends, using them to explain why we have lost confidence in the concept of society. He argues, however, that we do still need the concept in order to make sense of the forces which structure our lives.


Part of the prestigious Blackwell Manifestos series, this important book goes to the heart of contemporary social and political debate.
