An Introductory Guide to Post-structuralism and Postmodernism. Madan Sarup. This book provides an historical and a conceptual background to post-structuralism, and in part to post-modernism, for readers entering the discussions on post-structuralism.

The intention behind this collection was to provide a sound introduction to the key positions of a number of French poststructuralist thinkers who are being increasingly referred to, used as support, and even embraced by theorists in educational discourse.
