    In this accomplished, comprehensive and accessible book Barry Smart explores these questions. The book examines the social and economic processes which have shaped and continue to shape life today. It also provides exemplary critical assessments of the various `modern' and `postmodern' thinkers who have sought to explain these processes. Judicious in its judgements and superbly informed, the text is a major contribution to the debate on Modernity and Postmodernity.

    Reflections on change; questions concerning technology and (post) industrial society; alternative futures; art, work and analysis in an age of electronic simulation; the postmodern paradox; marxism, culture and change.
