Where did you see it—that perfect quotation from Foucault or Kristeva to use in your upcoming keynote address? Stop the search and pick up Arthur Berger’s handy book of over 300 concise quotations from the vast literature in cultural theory. This compilation will give you just the right snappy quote to help prepare that lecture, write that paper, fill that Power Point, or drop a few bon mots at a university reception. Organized by theoretical model (semiotic, Marxist, psychoanalytic, gender, postmodernist), Berger pulls together the most succinct, meaningful passages of the key theorists of our time for those wanting to distill cultural theory to its essence.
