Item description for The A to Z of Postmodern Life: Essays on Global Culture in the Noughties by Ziauddin Sardar...
From "Advertising" to "Zapping," "Sex" to "Shopping," "Fat" to "Future," and "Toys" to "Terrorism" . . . The A to Z of Postmodern Life explores the alphabet of ideas, products, and "isms" that shape global culture today. Prolific author, columnist, and social commentator Ziauddin Sardar presents a humorous and challenging collection of essays that are grounded in personal observation, acute analysis, and anecdote.
If you have ever wondered what the world is coming to, then let Sardar tell you. He is fast, fearless, and unafraid of those other "P" and "M" words: politics and morality.
This phosphorescently intelligent guide for the concerned and the confused will appeal to anyone trying to make sense of this strange new century.
