Starting Out as a Great Book!

I'm reviewing this book and it's started out great! Just the kind of stuff I like to read, decrying modernity AND post-modernity! Check out this great line:

"In different ways, both modernity and postmodernity have succumbed to the lure of autonomy. Modernity's vision of autonomy fosters the distorted conception of the self-governing, ahistorical, nonsectarian, rational self.... postmodernism... has succeeded in unmasking the incoherence of the modern notions of pure rational objectivity and liberal individualism only to foist on us an even more virulent addiction to autonomous self-creation." (p. 15)

This is how academic books should be written, esp if I'm off busy writing zombie novels!!
