Four recommended books on postmodernism

Four books that I learned from and that focus on the postmodern challenge in specific intellectual areas:

Koertge-House* Literature: John Ellis, Literature Lost: Social Agendas and the Corruption of the Humanities.

* History: Keith Windschuttle, The Killing of History.

* Science: Noretta Koertge, editor, A House Built on Sand: Exposing Postmodernist Myths About Science.

* Law: Daniel Farber and Suzanna Sherry, Beyond All Reason: The Radical Assault on Truth in American Law.

    I’m about a quarter through Sokal and Bricmont’s ‘Fashionable Nonsense: Postmodern Intellectuals’ Abuse of Science’: a devastating critique of postmodern pretensions and intellectual charlatanry. Of course you mention the delightful “Sokal Affair” in ‘Explaining Postmodernism’ which I heartily recommend to anyone reading this.
