Overview

What connects Marilyn Monroe, Disney World, The Satanic Verses and cyberspace?

Answer: postmodernism.

But what exactly is postmodernism? This graphic guide explains clearly the maddeningly enigmatic concept that has been used to define the world's cultural condition over the last three decades.

Introducing Postmodernism tracks the idea back to its roots by taking a tour of some of the most extreme and exhilarating events, people and thought of the last 100 years: in art – constructivism, conceptual art, Marcel Suchamp, Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol; in politics and history – McCarthy's witch-hunts, feminism, Francis Fukuyama and the Holocaust; in philosophy – the work of Derrida, Baudrillard, Foucault and Heidegger. This book also explores postmodernism's take on terrorism and unforeseen war that greeted the dawn of the 21st century.
