This important Manifesto argues that we still need a concept of society in order to make sense of the forces which structure our lives. It is written by leading social theorist William Outhwaite. It asks if the notion of society is relevant in the twenty-first century. It goes to the heart of contemporary social and political debate. It examines critiques of the concept of society from neoliberals, postmodernists, and globalization theorists.
