McCafferty and Hartsell-Gundy intend their book to be a guide to the various methods and resources needed to conduct literary research on aspects of British postmodernism. They acknowledge the difficulty of defining both the meaning and origins of postmodernism (but fix its ranges from 1956 to the present) and denote British to mean authors from the UK and Ireland, although the authors also include a few `colonies of significance.'.... Separate chapters outline particular resource types (encyclopedias, bibliographic tools, library catalogs, etc.) and discuss searching techniques for each. Others focus on scholarly journals, contemporary reviews, periodicals, manuscripts and archives, multimedia resources, critical theory, and miscellaneous web resources.... [C]ollections, instructors and literary studies majors may find it helpful. Summing Up: Undergraduates; professionals/practitioners. * CHOICE *
