Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This volume excels like no other in examining the many facets of postmodernism. Contributors not only reflect different disciplinary perspectives, but they display them to the greatest advantage as reference points for understanding and assessing the major figures and themes around which all discussions of postmodernism revolve. These qualities should recommend Postmodern Contentions to novice and expert alike." —David Ingram, Ph.D., Loyola University

"In short, this is a valuable and provocative volume highly deserving of careful scrutiny....the editors are to be congratulated on assembling a fine group of papers from several disciplines....I highly recommend it." —Barney Warf in Growth and Change

"Almost universally quiet and thoughtful, [this volume] addresses a set of contentious issues in ways that will be useful both for the reader first venturing into the subject and for the reader more familiar with the debates there....I highly recommend it." —Michael R. Curry in Annals of the Association of American Geographers

"Almost universally quiet and thoughtful, [this book] addresses a set of contentious issues in ways that will be useful both for the reader first venturing into the subject and for the reader more familiar with the debates there.... I highly recomeend it." —Michael R. Curry, Department of Geography, University of California, Los Angeles
