Jeffrey T. Nealon's new book, "Post-Postmodernism," has been published

by Daniel Tripp — Posted Aug 01, 2012 09:43 AM

Jeffrey T. Nealon's new book, Post-Postmodernism; or, The Cultural Logic of Just-in-Time Capitalism, has been published by the Stanford University Press.

From the publisher's site:

"Post-Postmodernism begins with a simple premise: we no longer live in the world of "postmodernism," famously dubbed "the cultural logic of late capitalism" by Fredric Jameson in 1984. Far from charting any simple move "beyond" postmodernism since the 1980s, though, this book argues that we've experienced an intensification of postmodern capitalism over the past decades, an increasing saturation of the economic sphere into formerly independent segments of everyday cultural life. If "fragmentation" was the preferred watchword of postmodern America, "intensification" is the dominant cultural logic of our contemporary era."
