  • Postmodernism For Beginnersby Jim Powell; Joe Lee

    If you are like most people, you’re not sure what Postmodernism is. And if this were like most books on the subject, it probably wouldn’t tell you.

  • Consumed Nostalgiaby Gary Cross

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 34.99

    Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be. For many of us, modern memory is shaped less by a longing for the social customs and practices of the past, or family heirlooms handed down over generations, and more by childhood encounters with ephemeral commercial goods and media moments. This phenomenon has given rise to communities of nostalgia built around... more...
