Editorial Reviews

Review

The best overall attempt to consider the postmodern debate across the board - from philosophy to literature to film to architecture to pop video and to popular culture - in an accessible and open style." Malcolm Bradbury, The Guardian (of the first edition)

From the Back Cover

The first edition of Postmodernist Culture quickly established itself as the most accesible and inclusive introduction to the question of postmodernism available. In this completely revised, updated and substantially enlarged new edition, Steven Connor shows that postmodernism has entered a distinctly new phase.

The new edition includes critical accounts of the most recent work of therorists such as Jean-François Lyotard, Frederic Jameson and David Harvey,as well as discussions of the new postmodernism which have emerged in the areas of law, music, dance, science fiction, popular culture, spatial theory, feminism, ethnorology, ecology and the new technologies. The book concludes with expanded discussions of postmodern critical style and cultural politics and a completely updated and revised bibliography.

Lucid, witty and brimming with insight, this richly augumented edition of Postmodernist Culture will secure its place as the most reliable and accessible guide to the subject for students, researchers and anyone with an interest in contemporary culture.

The books pricing was very good, and the quality of the book is much better than stated. It shipped fairly quickly, the only thing that would have been better was if it had a tracking number.
