'I recommend every household to buy two copies of this exemplary compendium. One for the teenagers who should have absorbed its wisdom before setting off to college; and the second for the parents, who won't ever need to make fools of themselves again by asking what metanarrative is.' - A.N. Wilson, New Statesman

'An extremely useful compilation ... This is a work crammed with interesting fact and speculation and with a most assiduous cross-referencing of key terms.' - Times Educational Supplement

'Concise and clear ... the Companion will be useful to many types of reader ... [it] provides an interesting and varied overview of the many ways in which postmodernism has established itself as a cultural phenomenon.' - Philosophy Now
