Description:
New York , NY, U.S.A.: St. Martin's Press, 1990. Reprint. Trade Paperback. Near Fine. This book takes issue with the major themes of postmodernism; it challenges the idealist irrationalism of post-structuralism, questions the existence of any radical break separating allegedly postmodern from modern art, and denies that recent socio-economic developments represent a fundamental shift from classical patterns of capital accumulation, and also takes issue with some critics of postmodernism, such as Habermas and Jameson; it views postmodernism as a symptom of political frustration and social mobility rather than a significant intellectual or cultural phenomenon, reflecting the disappointment of the generation of 1968 and the incorporation of many of its members into the new professional and managerial middle class (light blue cover with black lettering, a bright, clean, tight copy)
