This guide to deconstruction ranges across topics and discourses. Chapter topics range from the obvious (feminism, post-colonialism, technology) to the less so (drugs, film, weaving). But each of the essays has more than one focus, exploring or opening on to further and other deconstructions. The book has been put together to demonstrate the ceaselessly multiple and altering contexts in which deconstructive thinking and practice are at work, both within and beyond the academy, both within and beyond what is called the West. Nicholas Royle has commissioned new essays by contemporary thinkers, including Geoffrey Bennington, Diane Elam, J. Hillis Miller and Jacques Derrida.
