What is "deconstruction"? What authors are considered "postmodern novelists"? The Routledge Critical Dictionary of Postmodern Thought combines a series of 14 in-depth background chapters with a body of A-Z entries to create an authoritative, yet truly readable guide to the complex world of postmodernism. Following full-length articles on postmodernism and philosophy, politics, feminism, lifestyles, television, and other postmodern essentials, readers will find a wide range of alphabetically-organized entries on the people, terms and theories connected with postmodernism, including: Ackroyd, Peter; Baudrillard, Jean; Chaos Theory; Death of the Author; Desire; Fractals; Michel Foucault; Frankfurt School; Generation X; Minimalism; Poststructuralism; Retro; Spivak, Gayatri Chakravorty; Transavant-garde; and much more.

Students concerned with any aspect of postmodernist thought will find this an indispensable resource.
