5.0 out of 5 stars A foundational text on the analysis of postmodernity, 15 Mar. 2000
Harvey's book is one of two of the most original analyses of postmodernism (the other being Jameson's Postmodernism). Drawing particularly on the notion of flexible specialisation and a utilisation of the Regulationist approach, Harvey's book contributes to an understanding of the socio-economic foudations of the postmodern condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A foundational text on the analysis of postmodernism, 15 Mar. 2000
Jameson's book stands out as one of two major original contributions to the analysis of postmodernism (the other being David Harvey's Postmodern Condition). Sympathetic to Marxism, Jameson draws on Ernest Mandel's notion of late capitalism to suggest that postmodernism is the cultural logic of a distinct phase of capitalism. no analysis of review of postmodernism could exclude this foundational text.

5.0 out of 5 stars the definitive text on postmodern theory, 14 Mar. 2000
Best and Kellner's work represents not just a considerable achievement, but a major contribution to a difficult and wide ranging literature. Covering all the major authors and issues involved, this book is necessary reading for all those wishing to understand what postmodern theory is, and is not.
