The term 'postmodernism' is ubiquitous in current cultural debate, but its meanings are difficult to grasp. This is consistent with the deconstructed, fragmented, fleeting versions of the world to which postmodernist cultural commentators allude. This book provides an excellent survey of the main areas of discourse and issues within postmodernism.
