Living through stunning social change

“We live today in an era of stunning social change, marked by transformations radically discrepant from those of previous periods… the formation of intensified global communication systems, the apparent world-wide triumph of capitalism at a time at which global divisions are becoming acute and ecological problems looming more and more large – all these and other issues confront social science and have to confronted by social science.”

Anthony Giddens, “Modernity and Self-Identity,” 1991
