Postmodernism for Beginners by Jim Powell

When all of the cool kids are sitting in the coffee house musing about "Inception", Baudrillard, and Hyperreality, is your PoMo kung-fu to weak to bring it? Here's your self-study manual to all things postmodern: from Lyotard to Baudrillard, Blade Runner to Neuromancer, Madonna to Barbie. Trippy drawings and coverage of many of the boys in the postmodern band—Foucault, Derrida, Deleuze, and Guattari are all represented—round out this entry-level introduction to postmodern critical theory.
