Product description

Now in paperback, Fredric Jameson's most wide-ranging work seeks to crystalize a definition of "postmodernism." Jameson's inquiry looks at the postmodern across a wide landscape, from "high" art to "low" from market ideology to architecture, from painting to "punk" film, from video art to literature.

Review quote

"The scope and profundity of "Postmodernism," covering theory, architecture, film, video, and economics, is truly staggering. . . . Brilliant . . ."--Siauddin Sarda," The Independent "(London)

Back cover copy

"Fredric Jameson, internationally recognized as a literary theorist and as America's most notable Marxist intellectual, has established a leading place in discussions of postmodernism. Jameson brings to the subject an immense range of reference both to artworks and to theoretical discussions; a strong hypothesis linking cultural changes to changes in the place of culture within the whole structure of life produced by a new phase of economic history (multinational capitalism); and a severely scholarly wish to analyze and understand, rather than praise or blame, the object of his study."--Jonathan Arac
