Cultural History and Postmodernity: Disciplinary Readings and Challengesby Mark Poster
Perhaps Poster's greatest merit,
Poster charts the move from social history to new practices of cultural history that are drawing strength from poststructuralist interpretive strategies and raising issues found in feminist and postcolonial discourse. He provides close readings of Lawrence Stone; François Furet, Michel de Certeau and Michel Foucault.
Perhaps Poster's greatest merit, and no small merit it is in such company, is that he writes very clearly. (Christopher Kent)
