Description

This is the first source-book for this cross-disciplinary area. It takes students through a wide range of readings from philosophy, politics, and sociology, to human geography, international relations, and feminist studies. Bringing together statements from leading twentieth-century thinkers such as Derrida, Lyotard, Baudrillard, and Laclau and Mouffe, and with the editor's substantial introduction, this is an ideal teaching text, inspiring debate about the future of Marxism as a cultural theory.show more

Review quote

Taken together the extracts in this Reader add up to a very useful pedagogic tool for teachers of theory seeking to explain the twists and turns of Marxist thought in a period of relative eclipse. Sim's introduction is lucid, accessible and free from the jargon that often plagues volumes of this sort. All these essays can be read for profit and pleasure.
