“the development of consumer culture in many parts of the globe coincides with the emphasis within postmodernism on popular culture, fragmented and multi-coded texts, the collapse of cultural hierarchies (e.g. ‘high culture’ as opposed to ‘popular culture’), and the end of equating ‘history’ with ‘progress’.” (viii)
