Ideas are in short supply and critical thinking is under attack. That's according to Niall Lucy in his latest book, Pomo Oz. Pitting his humour and intellect against the conservative power brokers, Lucy champions the notion that free thought, not free trade, is the basis of democracy. These exciting and provocative essays challenge the reader to engage with the most contentious issues of our times.

"Niall Lucy keeps fighting the good fight, and on two fronts. The first is against the forces of darkness. The second is to bring to light that curious thing that is the language of public life itself." --McKenzie Wark, author, A Hacker Manifesto
"A revelatory little piece of analysis and corrective invective . . . I recommend it to any teacher who has been wondering what the hell has been going on re 'Postmodern Theory.'" --Western Teacher magazine
"Why not have a look at Niall's collection of provocative essays challenging us to think . . . If you have ever wondered just exactly what post-modernism was, here is your answer." --Scoop magazine
"A daring and timely book of essays; I can attest to the vibrancy, relevance and urgency of its engagement with the leading issues in contemporary Australian society and culture," --Darren Tofts, author, Parallax
"Po-faced purveyors of 'the' truth downunder, here's the piss-take of your nightmares--delivered with wit, panache and rigour." --Marion May Campbell, author, Lines of Flight
