About the Author:

Barry Smart is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. His publications include Modern Conditions, Postmodern Controversies and Michel Foucault, both published by Routledge.

Review:

'His short book is an extremely useful introduction to the debates surrounding postmodernism ...' - Social Science Teacher

'Barry Smart's book is written for students ... it manages to present conflicting theories with neat persuasiveness while making the author's reservations clear.' - The Modern Review

'This is an illuminating, sober and knowledge-enhancing account which may well be a milestone in the twisted road of our times to self-understanding ... [Smart's] feat will be welcomed by thousands of professionals, students and members of the enlightened public alike. Smart renders a priceless service to his readers, having digested on their behalf the enormous literature and sifted out everything valuable and important. Smart's 'career report' of the debate is comprehensive, critical yet fair, and expressed in jargon-free language.' - Zygmunt Bauman, Political Studies
