Bertens, Hans
At last! Everything you ever wanted to know about postmodernism but were afraid to ask. Hans Bertens' Postmodernism is the first introductory overview of postmodernism to succeed in providing a witty and accessible guide for the bemused student. In clear and straightforward but always elegant prose, Bertens sets out the interdisciplinary aspects, the critical debates and the key theorists of postmodernism. He also explains, in thoughtful and illuminating language, the relationship between postmodernism and poststructuralism, and that between modernism and postmodernism. An enjoyable and indispensible text for today's student. 284pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Slight nick to top of spine.

Head and tail of spine and D/J spine slightly bumped. 279pp.

Timms, Edward
This is an unusual narrative in that it successfully combines subjectivity - how an English person was led by a sequence of educational developments, personal encounters and historical constraints to become the founder of the German-Jewish Centre at the University of Sussex; and objectivity - a book that introduces English and American readers to an important and evolving field of historical and cultural studies through intellectual autobiography. It documents the formative experiences of a scholar who was to become a pioneering teacher and researcher in the field of German culture and politics. The aim is to relate the shaping of self to the drift of history in a period of radical social change, extending from the refugee crisis caused by Hitler's seizure of power through the ordeals of the Second World War to post-war reconstruction, and the transformation of Britain into a modern multicultural society. The focus is on the formative role of institutions: vicarage childhood, Anglican schooling, Cambridge and other university environments - especially the new map of learning at Sussex University in the 1960s. The 'Torch' in the title alludes to the transmission of a radical intellectual tradition and to a specific commitment to the study of Die Fackel, the satirical journal edited by Karl Kraus in Vienna from 1899 to 1936. From this emerged the innovative agenda developed by the Centre for German-Jewish Studies. 315pp.

Merryman, John Henry and Elsen,Albert E.
Although the 1990s witnessed more than a few episodes of shocking cultural destruction, this text notes a great surge in worldwide consciousness of the unique, irreplaceable character of art, and a significant rollback of the cultural prejudices that have been ebbing away since the 1954 Hague Convention declared all art works, whatever their origin, to be "the cultural heritage of mankind." Whether you need to understand a concept such as who owns the past, or something as mundane as whether a museum can sell part of its collection in order to fix the roof, this book aims to set you on the right course. It combines scholarship with a humanistic approach, recognising that law and art each (in the words of Paul Freund) "impose a measure of order on the disorder of experience without stifling the underlying diversity, spontaneity, and disarray."
