The Political Unconscious is a major work, and it should be read by historians, social scientists, and philosophers, as well as by literary scholars.—Hayden White "A major work of critical theory . . . The Political Unconscious integrates and refines a vast body of theoretical work, demonstrating a superb mastery of the field of contemporary criticism. The result . . . is a compelling, forceful argument in favor of the primacy of Marxism over contending strategies of interpretation."—Nineteenth-Century Fiction "Monumental . . . . Its learning and range of references are exceeded only be the imperial embrace of its complex argument, whose elaboration never imposes a sacrifice of clarity. . . . Indispensable for all university and college libraries."—Choice

Fredric R. Jameson, Marxist theorist and professor of comparative literature at Duke University, was born in Cleveland in 1934. He earned a Ph.D. from Harvard University and taught at Harvard, the University of California at San Diego, and Yale University before moving to Duke in 1985. He most famous work is Postmodernism, or the Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism, which won the Modern Language Association's Lowell Award. Jameson was among the first to associate a specific set of political and economic circumstances with the term postmodernism. His other books include Sartre: The Origin of a Style, The Seeds of Time, and The Cultural Turn.
