WINNER OF THE 1991 PHILIP ABRAMS MEMORIAL PRIZE. a Barbara Adam will be read well into the next century not only for her remarkable understanding of human time but for the link she makes with the conception of time held by physicists and biologists.a Michael Young, Director, Institute of Community Studies a Very important ... an exceptionally clearly expressed account of issues usually dealt with in the most clotted writing. It is a genuine expression of sociological thought using the insights of other disciplines not as a borrowinga but as illustrations of a direction to be followed.a Sociology a Barbara Adam has written a superb book.a Time and SocietyFrom the Publisher:
Time is at the forefront of contemporary scholarly inquiry across the natural sciences and the humanities. Yet the social sciences have remained substantially isolated from time--related concerns. This book argues that time should be a key part of social theory and focuses concern upon issues which have emerged as central to an understanding of todaya s social world. Through her analysis of time Barbara Adam shows that our contemporary social theories are firmly embedded in Newtonian science and classical dualistic philosophy. She exposes these classical frameworks of thought as inadequate to the task of conceptualizing our contemporary world of standardized time, computers, nuclear power and global telecommunications.
