Modernity and Self-Identity: Self and Society in the Late Modern Ageby Anthony Giddens
The author argues that 'high' or 'late' modernity is a post-traditional order characterized by a developed institutional reflexivity. In the current period, the globalizing tendencies of modern institutions are accompanied by a transformation of day-to-day social life having profound implications for personal activities.
