Postmodernism and Popular Culture: A Cultural History

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Dec 12, 1994 - Literary Criticism - 335 pages
In this provocative study, John Docker takes his readers on an intellectual adventure. The journey includes a guided tour of the history of modernism, consideration of the development of postmodernism, explanation of structuralism and poststructuralism, and discussion of the debates and conflicts around each. It ranges widely, from theoretical discussion to consideration of everything from architecture, television and detective writing to Sydney's monorail. The book engages with some of the most important debates of our time, combining polemical force with intellectual rigor, and reclaims popular culture from the forces opposed to it.
