        Liquid Fear (2006)

        Zygmunt Bauman

        Cambridge: Polity Press 2007

        ISBN 9780745636801

      1. Here Bauman analyzes the prevalence of fear in western society, a product not only of terrorism and the unending ‘war on terror,’ but also due to the threat of natural disaster, environmental catastrophe, etc. He argues that anxiety and fear are the dominant emotions that pervade our ‘liquid modernity,’ the constantly shifting and unknowable ground on which we find ourselves. See in particular ‘Terrors of the Global.’
