It's a Sin
By Lawrence Grossberg, Tony Fry, Ann Curthoys and Paul Patton
With It's a Sin: Essays on Postmodernism, Politics and Culture Lawrence Grossberg closely scrutinises the intellectual and institutional foundations of cultural studies and puts forward the provocative thesis that cultural studies has become part of the academy it has so regularly criticised. The author relates this 'absorption of the critics' to a series of realignments that are currently affecting the relationships between left politics and culture. Paul Patton argues for a reinvention of radical politics within the shifting conditions of postmodernity.
