Review:

"An encyclopedic grasp of modern culture."
--Stuart Hall," Marxism Today"

“Fredric Jameson, internationally recognized as a literary theorist and as America’s most notable Marxist intellectual, has established a leading place in discussions of postmodernism. Jameson brings to the subject an immense range of reference both to artworks and to theoretical discussions; a strong hypothesis linking cultural changes to changes in the place of culture within the whole structure of life produced by a new phase of economic history (multinational capitalism); and a severely scholarly wish to analyze and understand, rather than praise or blame, the object of his study.”—Jonathan Arac

"The scope and profundity of "Postmodernism," covering theory, architecture, film, video, and economics, is truly staggering. . . . Brilliant . . ."--Siauddin Sarda," The Independent "(London)

For anybody hoping to understand not just the cultural but the political and social implications of postmodernism . . . Jameson s book is a fundamental, nonpareil text. --Gilbert Adair "Sunday Times (London) ""

Fredric Jameson is America s leading Marxist critic, a prodigiously energetic thinker whose writings sweep magisterially from Sophocles to science fiction. . . . Postmodernism is an intellectual blockbuster. --Terry Eagleton "The Irish Times ""

No one theorist illustrates the recent history of postmodernism s history so well as Fredric Jameson. --Michael Berube "Voice Literary Supplement ""
