Facing Postmodernity explains French cultural theory by grounding it in the politics of the issues facing France today such as:
* the breaking of the city
* racism
* the crisis of culture
* new citizenship.
It discusses some of the major responses to postmodernity by contemporary French thinkers, both the very well known -Lyotard, Levinas, Derrida - and those who will be less familiar to a non-French audience. In doing so, it addresses the questions central to the postmodern debate whatever country it takes place in; questions of history, of representation, identity and community.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."the book's many strengths...include its accessible discussion of complex ideas, its fair-minded treatment of each side of a given issue, its many original insights into the nature of postmodernity, and its complete mastery of an impressive bibliography of French thought. Concluding optimistically that French ideas will play a vital role in "the reconstruction of 'the human' beyond the Enlightenment," "Facing Postmodernity is an indispensable source for anyone interested in comtemporary France and postmodernism.."
-Michael F. Leruth, L'Esprit Createur, Spring 2001
