Christopher Butler challenges and explores the key ideas of postmodernists, as well as their engagement with theory, literature, the visual arts, film, architecture, and music. By treating artists, intellectuals, critics, and social scientists as if they were all members of a loosely constituted and quarrelsome political party,” he creates a vastly entertaining framework in which to unravel the mysteries of the postmodern condition” from the politicizing of museum culture to the cult of the politically correct.
