In exploring postmodern debates across disciplines and genres, the author considers the institutional conditions and intellectual regroupings which frame postmodern theory and shows that the theory, although proclaiming a diversity in global culture, is itself a form of intellectual containment. He discusses the theory in philosophy, political theory, architecture, art, photography, literature, drama, film, television, popular culture, media and contemporary cultural politics and treats the postmodernist debate as a self-reflexive phenomenon, whose nature and form reflect the conditions of the postmodern. The author's previous books are "Samuel Beckett, Repetition, Theory and Text" and "Charles Dickens".

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.Review:
