The Post-Modern and the Post-Industrial Summary


The Post-Modern and the Post-Industrial: A Critical Analysis by Margaret A. Rose

This book offers an historical and critical guide to the concepts of the post-modern and the post-industrial. It brings admirable clarity and thoroughness to a discussion of the many different uses made of the term post-modern across a number of different disciplines (including literature, architecture, art history, philosophy, anthropology and geography). It also analyses the concept of the post-industrial society to which the concept of the post-modern has often been related. Dr Rose discusses the work of many theorists in the area, including Hassan, Lyotard, Jameson and the architectural historian Charles Jencks, and also looks at analyses and uses of the concepts of the post-modern and post-industrial by Frampton, Portoghesi, Peter Fuller and others.

The Post-Modern and the Post-Industrial Reviews


'Rarely can one say of a scholarly work that it is so good as to advance the discourse on a subject - but here I can. Margaret Rose has studied and understood all sides of the debate on post-modernism, which is more than one can say of the debaters, and she has represented the arguments with sympathy. Anyone who wants to understand post-modernism - especially now that confused books are appearing on the subject monthly - need look no further than this summary and criticism.' Charles Jencks
