Description

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.
