Jim Powell. Illustrated by Joe Lee.


If you are like most people, you’re not sure
what Postmodernism is. Jim Powell takes the
position that Postmodernism is a series of
“maps” that help people find their way through a
changing world. Postmodernism For Beginners
features the thoughts of Foucault on power and
knowledge, Jameson on mapping the postmodern,
Baudrillard on the media, Harvey on time-space
compression, Derrida on deconstruction and
Deleuze and Guattari on rhizomes. The book also
discusses postmodern artifacts such as Madonna,
cyberpunk, Buddhist ecology, and teledildonics.
