Book Description

Facing Postmodernity explains French cultural theory by grounding it in the politics of the issues facing France today such as:
* the breaking of the city
* racism
* the crisis of culture
* new citizenship.
It discusses some of the major responses to postmodernity by contemporary French thinkers, both the very well known -Lyotard, Levinas, Derrida - and those who will be less familiar to a non-French audience. In doing so, it addresses the questions central to the postmodern debate whatever country it takes place in; questions of history, of representation, identity and community.
