With characteristic brilliance, Zygmunt Bauman shows that the problem of coping with 'wasted lives' - the 'superfluous' populations of migrants, refugees and other outcasts - provides a key for understanding some otherwise baffling features of our shared life, from the strategies of global domination to the most intimate aspects of human relationships.

"This is a rather brilliant, dense and chaotic meditation on ideas of waste in our time of what Bauman terms "liquid modernity" ... A sparkling and highly suggestive read."
