Description - Culture and Identity by Dr. Ross Abbinnett
This incisive and timely book provides a concise and reliable guide to the debate on modernity and postmodernity. In particular the work of Lyotard, Beck, Bauman, Baudrillard, Giddens, Jameson and Derrida is critically reviewed. Culture and Identity provides: - a thorough and accessible discussion of the main themes in the modernity-postmodernity debate - a shrewd and penetrating account of how these themes address everyday life - a novel account of how technology is altering our perceptions of the 'human' - a balanced account of the hope for radical politics and radical critique to correct the excesses of capitalism.
