About The Book
In this timely volume, the authors systematically analyze postmodern theory to evaluate its relevance for critical social theory and radical politics today.
Best and Kellner provide:
* An introduction and critique of the work of Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari, Baudrillard, Lyotard, Laclau and Mouffe, and Jameson, which assess the varying contributions and limitations of postmodern theory
* A discussion of postmodern feminist theory and the politics of identity
* A systematic study of the origin of the discourse of the postmodern in historical, sociological, cultural, and philosophical studies.
The authors claim that while postmodern theory provides insights into contemporary developments, it lacks adequate methodological and political perspectives to provide a critical social theory and radical politics for the present age.
