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.
