Overview

This state-of-the-art handbook represents the postmodern revolution to the broadest extent of its impact on contemporary theories of culture and society. A diverse group of scholars offers over fifty summaries of the key figures who have been postmodernism's greatest literary, cultural, and political champions. From Salman Rushdie to Robert Rauschenberg, Frantz Fanon to Michel Foucault, and Carlos Fuentes to Cindy Sherman, Postmodernism: The Key Figures captures the dominance of a theoretical paradigm that has done nothing less than redefine the very terms of our knowledge and experience.

Entries mark the formal institutionalization of postmodernism in the academy – from fine art, philosophy, and literature to race/ethnic studies, film, and music. Postmodernism: The Key Figures is a handy reference for anyone who wants to understand how contemporary society, politics, and our everyday lives have been touched by this most recent – and most controversial – of theoretical turns.
