"Theory Matters is an authoritative and informed assessment of the current state of theory, which Vincent Leitch describes as "disaggregated" or "disorganized," a condition not of debility but of responsiveness to the cultural and socioeconomic conditions of contemporary society." -- John Guillory
"In this readable book, Vincent Leitch provides a stimulating (and well organized!) overview of postmodern 'disorganization.' The chapters on the making of the Norton Anthology of Criticism and Theory are a special bonus." -- Gerald Graff, Professor of English and Education, University of Illinois at Chicago
"In this engaging and readable collection of essays, Vincent B. Leitch offers a diagnosis of the current state of literary and cultural studies." -- Josh Cohen, Literary Theory
