Peter Wagner's analysis is unfailingly intelligent and judicious, and often brilliant. By contrast, this book is based on the idea that, under conditions of modernity, there are no stable and certain answers to these questions. This is twenty-first century social and political theory at its very best. William Outhwaite, University of Newcastle. There is a plurality of possible answers, every proposed answer can be criticized and contested, and every society needs to find its answer on its own.
Wagner begins by returning to the question of modernity's Western origins and its claims to open up a new and better era in the history of humanity.

A fundamental ambivalence of modernity is captured by the twin notions of liberty and discipline and examined in three major dimensions: the relations between individual liberty and political community, between agency and structure, and between locally situated human lives and widely extended social institutions.

We are all modern today. This trinity used to be called 'modern society'. But modernity today is not what it used to be. Over the past few decades, modernity has been radically changed by globalization, individualization, new inequalities, and fundamentalism. A novel way of analysing contemporary societies is needed. This book proposes such an analysis.
