  • Theory, Culture & Society

    Theory, Culture & Society caters for the resurgence of interest in culture within contemporary social science and the humanities. Building on the heritage of classical social theory, the book series examines ways in which this tradition has been reshaped by a new generation of theorists. It also publishes theoretically informed analyses of everyday life, popular culture and new intellectual movements.

    To my parents


    I would like to thank Brian Torode of Trinity College, Dublin, my former sociological colleagues at Keele University and my present colleagues at the University of New England for encouraging my research endeavours in ways both general and specific. Special thanks to David Gray for making me think about the sense-based sociology mentioned in the introductory chapter, to Frances Gray for suggesting the title of Chapter 7, and to Peter Forrest for pointing out that Chapter 3 was not about time but rather about times. Part of Chapter 5 appeared originally in the journal Sociology, and part of Chapter 2 appeared in Body & Society.
