Contends that the problem of historicism is not just about the validity of knowledge, and that the new historicism is not so much an answer to the difficulties of writing history as the posing of new questions. Treks through such terrain as Michael Foucault, archaeology, genealogy, and power; Pierre Bourdieu, habitus, representation, and symbolic exchange; Raymond Williams and cultural materialism; ideology, hegemony, Althusser, Macherey, and Gramsci, and Stephen Greenblatt. Paper edition (unseen), $24.95. Distributed in the US by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
