9780631200529: Postmodernist Culture: An Introduction to Theories of the Contemporary

In this completely revised and considerably expanded new edition, Steven Connor considers the recent work of the most influential postmodern theorists, including Lyotard and Jameson, and offers accounts both of the work of newly emerging theorists and new areas of postmodernist culture which have developed over the last decade, especially in law, music, dance, spatial theory, ethnography, ecology, and the new technologies.

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.

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)
