This book does a nice job introducing the historical development of Postmodernism. The author gets lost when he tries to apply this history to contemporary politics, an analysis of current trends in social democracy or liberal capitalism. The second half of the book reads more like a hard core right wing nut job bashing liberalism and social/progressive ideals, than an academic scholar taking a well balanced and considerate look at current challenges.
