Introducing postmodernism by Richard Appignanesi ( Book )
35 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and Romanian and held by 638 libraries worldwide
"Postmodernism seemed to promise an end to the grim Cold War era of nuclear confrontation and oppressive ideologies. Fukuyama's notoriously proclaimed 'end of history', the triumph of liberal democracy over Communist tyranny, has proved an illusion. We awoke in the anxious grip of globalization, unpredictable terrorism and unforeseen war." "Introducing Postmodernism traces the pedigrees of postmodernism in art, theory, science and history, providing an urgent guide to the present. Derrida, Baudrillard, Foucault and many other icons of postmodern complexity are brilliantly elucidated by Richard Appignanesi and enlivened by the Guardian's 'Biff' cartoonist Chris Garratt."--BOOK JACKET.

Introducing quantum theory by J. P McEvoy ( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 471 libraries worldwide
"How does quantum theory explain all of the chemistry and most of physics? Why does this theory upset common sense? At the sub-atomic level, one particle seems to know what others are doing, so-called non-locality, and there is a limit on how accurately nature can be observed, says Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. Yet the theory is amazingly accurate and widely applied." "Introducing Quantum Theory takes us on a step-by-step tour with the key players - Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, Schrodinger and others. Each contributed at least one crucial concept to the theory. The puzzle of the wave-particle duality is here along with description of the two questions raised against Bohr's Copenhagen Interpretation...the famous "dead and alive cat" and the EPR paradox. Both remain unresolved at the end of the 20th century."--BOOK JACKET.

Postmodernism for beginners by Richard Appignanesi ( Book )
14 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 386 libraries worldwide
"What is postmodernism? Here at last is a long overdue graphic study guide to the maddeningly enigmatic concept used to define our cultural condition in the late twentieth century." "Postmodernism claims that "modernity" which began with 'the Enlightenment', industrialism, Darwin and Marx, has collapsed. We now live in an endlessly 'contemporary culture' full of contested meanings. The resulting postmodern culture embodies parody, pastiche and cultural cross-over. It is a virtual world of hyperreality containing such strange phenomena as post-Holocaust amnesia, Disneyland, cyberspace, and Fukuyama's proclaimed 'end of history'."--BOOK JACKET.

Introducing Derrida by Jeff Collins ( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 328 libraries worldwide
"Jacques Derrida is one of the most influential figures in contemporary philosophy. Yet Derrida has undermined the accepted rules of philosophy, rejected its methods and concepts, disrupted its boundaries and contaminated philosophy with literary and other kinds of writing. Derrida's philosophy is an initially puzzling array of oblique, sliding and yet rigorous tactics for destabilizing texts, meanings and identities. "Deconstruction", as these strategies have been called, has been reviled as a politically pernicious nihilism and celebrated as a liberatory politics of choice and indifference." "Introducing Derrida describes the key strategies of Derrida's writing, explains their controversial effects in philosophy, and shows how Derrida himself has put them to use in literature, art, architecture and politics."--BOOK JACKET.
