Introducing postmodernism by Richard Appignanesi ( Book )
30 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and Romanian and held by 624 libraries worldwide
"Postmodernism seemed to promise an end to the grim Cold War era of nuclear confrontation and oppressive ideologies. Fukuyama's notoriously proclaimed 'end of history', the triumph of liberal democracy over Communist tyranny, has proved an illusion. We awoke in the anxious grip of globalization, unpredictable terrorism and unforeseen war." "Introducing Postmodernism traces the pedigrees of postmodernism in art, theory, science and history, providing an urgent guide to the present. Derrida, Baudrillard, Foucault and many other icons of postmodern complexity are brilliantly elucidated by Richard Appignanesi and enlivened by the Guardian's 'Biff' cartoonist Chris Garratt."--BOOK JACKET.
Postmodernism for beginners by Richard Appignanesi ( Book )
12 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 383 libraries worldwide
"What is postmodernism? Here at last is a long overdue graphic study guide to the maddeningly enigmatic concept used to define our cultural condition in the late twentieth century." "Postmodernism claims that "modernity" which began with 'the Enlightenment', industrialism, Darwin and Marx, has collapsed. We now live in an endlessly 'contemporary culture' full of contested meanings. The resulting postmodern culture embodies parody, pastiche and cultural cross-over. It is a virtual world of hyperreality containing such strange phenomena as post-Holocaust amnesia, Disneyland, cyberspace, and Fukuyama's proclaimed 'end of history'."--BOOK JACKET.

Ethics for beginners by Dave Robinson ( Book )
7 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 180 libraries worldwide
"Ethics has become a burning issue in moral philosophical thought, raising the specter of responsibility at a time when responsibility seems entirely replaced by uncertainty and relativism." "In a climate of instant information, free markets and possible ecological disaster, how do we define "rights", self-interest and civic duties? What are the acceptable limits of scientific investigation, genetic engineering, the rights and wrongs of animal rights, euthanasia and civil disobedience?" "What is the place of individual choice and consequence in a post-Holocaust world of continuing genocidal ethnic cleansing? Is "identity" now a last-ditch cultural defense of ethnic nationalisms and competing fundamentalisms?" "Introducing Ethics confronts these dilemmas. It traces in words and images the arguments of the great moral thinkers, including Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Hobbes and Kant, and brings the reader up to date with postmodern critics."--BOOK JACKET.
