which hosts the bibliography contains several more items of interest,

- Postmodernism and its Critics:
This site was created by Shannon Weiss and Karla Wesley as an assignment
for a Spring 1997 Social Anthropology course at the University of Alabama.
For a subject that often leaves students cold, these students have done an
excellent job summarizing the key concepts, figures, and methodologies of
postmodernism; instructors would do well to point their own students to
this page. The site briefly lays out the basic premises, key works, leading
figures, principle concepts, reactions and criticisms, and methodologies of
postmodernism. Also included are a modest collection of resources and
related links. (Scout Report for the Social Sciences, 10 Feb. 1998).
