Rethinking Modernity by Gurminder K. Bhambra

Book Awards

  • Shortlisted for European Amalfi Prize for Sociology 2008.

Book Description

Arguing for the idea of connected histories, Bhambra presents a fundamental reconstruction of the idea of modernity in contemporary sociology. She criticizes the abstraction of European modernity from its colonial context and the way non-Western 'others' are disregarded. It aims to establish a dialogue in which 'others' can speak and be heard.

Books By Author Gurminder K. Bhambra

John Dewey by Gurminder K. Bhambra John Dewey, Hardback (January 2016)

Narayan shows how Dewey sets out an evolutionary form of global and national democracy in his work, which has not been fully appreciated even by contemporary scholars of pragmatism, and which offers valuable lessons for the 21st century and for our own hopes for global democracy.

Debt as Power by Gurminder K. Bhambra Debt as Power, Paperback (January 2016)

"Debt as power is a timely and innovative contribution to our understanding of one of the most prescient issues of our time: the explosion of debt across the global economy and related requirement of political leaders to pursue exponential growth to meet the demands of creditors and investors."

Connected Sociologies by Gurminder K. Bhambra Connected Sociologies, Hardback (October 2014)

Bhambra outlines what 'Theory for a Global Age' might look like, offering this outline as a statement for consideration, contestation and discussion. Bhambra sets the agenda for a new social theory which not only engages with global intellectual currents, but is fundamentally reshaped by them.
