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 distinctively new phase. The new edition includes critical accounts of the most recent work of theorists such as Jean-Francois Lyotard, Frederic Jameson and David Harvey, as well as discussions of the new postmodernisms which have emerged in the areas of law, music, dance, sience fiction, popular culture, spatial theory, feminism, ethnography, ecology and new technologies. The book concludes with expanded discussions of postmodern critical stlye and cultural politics and a completely updated and revised bibliography. Lucid, witty and brimming with insight, this richly augmented 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.
