about

Discourse/Counter-Discourse is situated on the border between cultural history and literary criticism: combining the insights of Marxism and semiotics, it attempts to delineate the cultural function of texts. Focusing on France during a period of remarkable cultural, social, and political transformation, Richard Terdiman examines both the dominant bourgeois discourse—novels, newspapers, and other mass forms of expression—and the effort of intellectuals to devise counter-discourses to combat it.

Editorial Reviews

"It seldom happens that a book gives one exactly what one hungers for. This book does. It is remarkable both for its fine-tuned sense of the historical period and for its stunning synthesis of major theoretical discourses."

- Barbara E. Johnson, Harvard University
