Critical Modernism: Where Is Post-Modernism Going? - Charles Jencks

This is an incredible book. It is provocative and insightful. It aims at introducing postmodernism is a ‘new’ way that is attempts to make sense of the most striking elements that contributed in rendering postmodernism a sort of everlasting revival of modernism.

Jencks is a pedantic reader. We get examples of the state of postmodernism today from various fields: architecture (of course), literature, technology, and even physics and so on.

This book is too short though considering the data it makes use of. Sometimes it is confusing. I would not recommend this book for those who want to be introduced to postmodernism, as it’s not easy to follow the thoughts of the author without knowing already a lot about postmodernism.
