Fredric Jameson has been described as "probably the most important cultural critic writing in English today" and he is widely acknowledged as the foremost proponent for the tradition of critical theory known as Western Marxism.Yet his work has not been given the systematic review like other contemporary thinkers like Fooucault and Derrida.
Fredric Jameson: Marxism, Hermeneutics, Postmodernism is a thoroughly up-to-date, detailed review and analysis of the work of this influential intellectual. Covering Jameson's work and thought from his early projects of form and history to his more recent engagements with postmodernism and cultural politics, this synthesis offers a balanced assessment of his ideas, their development and their continuing influence.
Sean Homer is Lecturer in Psychoanalytic Studies at University of Sheffield.
"Extremely well-researched, written and organized, covering the entirety of Jameson's corpus. The study is also very lively and polemical, bringing in a wide range of critical literature to bear on Jameson's thought. There is no comparable book on the market which provides such a comprehensive and engaging study." -- Douglas Kellner, University of Texas, Austin
