    Politics and Culture

    Politics and Culture analyses the complex relationships between civil society, identities and contemporary states. Individual books will draw on the major theoretical paradigms in politics, international relations, history and philosophy within which citizenship, rights and social justice can be understood. The series will focus attention on the implications of globalization, the information revolution and postmodernism for the study of politics and society. It will relate these advanced theoretical issues to conventional approaches to welfare, participation and democracy.

    I would like to extend my thanks to the following people. To Sian, for her willingness to proof read the endless ‘draft copies’ I produced. To Keith Tester, for his sound advice on the scope of the project. To Chris and Robert Rojek at Sage Publications, for their help in getting the manuscript into production. Thanks are also due to the School of Cultural Studies at Leeds Metropolitan University, whose funding of my recent sabbatical allowed me finally to complete this book.


    For my parents


    There is change, and departure: but there is also help when least looked for from the strangers of the day, and hiding, out among the accidents of this drifting Humility, never quite to be extinguished, a few small chances for mercy…

    ThomasPynchon, Gravity's Rainbow
