Panic Encyclopedia
The Definitive Guide to the Postmodern Scene

Arthur Kroker, Marilouise Kroker and David Cook

"My favorite book of last year was the Panic Encyclopedia, ...a truly courageous attempt to pin down postmodern culture... a classic."
-Times Higher Education Supplement

In a stimulating and thoroughly entertaining look at the rapid countdown to the year 2000, the Panic Encyclopedia argues that in the postmodern era, science and technology are the real language of power, and illustrates the resulting culture through a post-alphabetical listing of "panics" - from Panic Art to Panic Zombies, and including Panic Elvis, Panic Psychoanalysis and Panic Sex. Humorously embracing newspaper and media events and philosophers from Hegel to McLuhan, the text chronicles the implosion of the modem world into a final singularity.
