Departing from those who define postmodernism in film merely as a visual style or set of narrative conventions, Anne Friedberg develops the first sustained account of the cinema's role in postmodern culture. She explores the ways in which nineteenth-century visual experiences—photography, urban strolling, panorama and diorama entertainments—anticipate contemporary pleasures provided by cinema, video, shopping malls, and emerging "virtual reality" technologies. Comparing the visual practices of shopping, tourism, and film-viewing, Friedberg identifies the experience of "virtual" mobility through time and space as a key determinant of postmodern cultural identity. Evaluating the theories of Jameson, Lyotard, Baudrillard, and others, she adds critical insights about the role of gender and gender mobility in the configurations of consumer culture. A strikingly original work, Window Shopping challenges many of the existing assumptions about what exactly postmodern is. This book marks the emergence of a compelling new voice in the study of contemporary culture.

Parker systematically reviews the key psychoanalytic theories to reveal social processes and their significance to modern life: Freud and object relations theory is directed towards group processes, religion and war; the Frankfurt School is used to examine modern individuality, authoritarianism and changes in culture; and the Lacanian tradition to account for language, representation and self-improvement. The theoretical analysis incorporates throughout the volume the work of key figures ranging from Adorno, Habermas and Fromm to Klein, Kristeva, Winnicott and Zizek.
