It is an accessible and comprehensive survey of the intellectual developments that have brought about a wholesale shift in cultural perspectives. Combining detailed essays, written by experts in the subject, with an invaluable A-Z guide to 'who's who' and 'what's what' in postmodernism, this is the guide to a phenomenon that has shaped today's world."--BOOK JACKET."
