Paperback
This anthology presents the synthesizing trend of Post-Modernism in all its diversity.

- Publisher This anthology presents the synthesising trend in all its diversity and includes key historical texts by Daniel Bell and Jena-Francois Lyotard as well as seminal papers by Andreas Huyssen, James Collins, Umberto Eco, John Barth, Linda Hutcheon, David Lodge, among others. This book includes: New Culture Theory, Late Modernism as Post-Modernism, Literature, Art, Architecture, Film, Sociology, Politics, Geography, Feminism, Science and Religion.

- Publisher The Post-Modern Reader edited by Charles Jencks An Anthology of a World Movement Post-Modernism has been debated, attacked, and defended for a generation, but only in the last few years has it come into focus as a coherent way of thought embracing all areas of culture. This is the first anthology that presents the synthesising trend in all its diversity, a convergence in architecture and literature, film and cultural theory, sociology, feminism and theology, science and economics. It is however, a synthesis with a difference; it is one which stresses a contested pluralism, the dialogic' that underlies the growth of sciences as well as the development of other art forms such as the novel. Some of the key historical texts are reprinted in part - those of Daniel Bell on the post-industrial society and Jean-Franois Lyotard on the post-modern condition. The new cultural logic of contested pluralism is analysed in seminal papers by Andreas Huyssen and Jim Collins. The fundamental ideas on post-modern literature are defined by Umberto Eco, John Barth and David Lodge and the theories they present challenge the notion of post-modernism as an ultra avant-garde movement and the expression of a consumer society.
