Front Cover
McGraw-Hill Education (UK), Jul 1, 2006 - Social Science - 200 pages
This book critically assesses claims made about the 'postmodernization' of culture and society and explores the complex interplay between the modern and the postmodern in an increasingly globalized world . The author argues that although culture may be 'postmodern' in terms of art, entertainment and everyday life, modernity still exists and is pervasive.
