9780230223677: The Politics of Sleep: Governing (Un)consciousness in the Late Modern Age

Why has sleep become increasingly politicized in contemporary society? This book provides an account of the politics of sleep in the late modern age. The future of sleep has become contested and uncertain: something to be defended, downsized or even perhaps (one day) done away with altogether.

About the Author:

SIMON J. WILLIAMS Professor of Sociology at the University of Warwick, UK. He is author of ten books, including Sleep and Society; Medicine and the Body and Emotion and Social Theory, innumerable journal articles and book chapters, and edits a book series with Routledge, Critical Studies on Health and Society.

Review:

"[Simon Williams'] scholarship is at its most exceptional."- Contemporary Sociology

"This carefully crafted book is beautifully written, providing an elegant and convincing argument of relevance for sociologists of health and illness, as well as sociologists of the body and those interested in broader structural issues associated with global capitalism." - Sociology of Health and Illness
