A Dictionary of Postmodernism presents an authoritative A-Z of the critical terms and central figures related to the origins and evolution of postmodernist theory and culture. * Explores the names and ideas that have come to define the postmodern condition - from Baudrillard, Jameson, and Lyotard, to the concepts of deconstruction, meta-narrative, and simulation - alongside less canonical topics such as dialogue and punk * Includes essays by the late Niall Lucy, a leading expert in postmodernism studies, and by other noted scholars who came together to complete and expand upon his last work * Spans a kaleidoscope of postmodernism perspectives, addressing its lovers and haters; its movers and shakers such as Derrida; its origins in modernism and semiotics, and its outlook for the future * Features a series of brief essays rather than fixed definitions of the key ideas and arguments * Engaging and thought-provoking, this is at once a scholarly guide and enduring reference for the field


--Randall Stevenson, University of Edinburgh
"Quirky, colourful and polemical, this volume is as much mosaic as dictionary, re-laying and reconfiguring established positions, suggesting new angles, and helping current understanding both to encompass, and perhaps finally move beyond, postmodern theories so influential in the late twentieth century."
--Steven Connor, University of Cambridge
"Niall Lucy's Dictionary of Postmodernism is as sharp and sprightly an assembly of essays on postmodernism as one could wish for, which demonstrates the continuing traction and reach of postmodern thought in contemporary art and culture. All the principal persons and preoccupations are considered and the essays are clear-eyed and invigorating."
