From the New Criticism to Deconstruction traces the transitions in American critical theory and practice from the 1950s to the 1980s. It focuses on the influence of French structuralism and post-structuralism on American deconstruction within a wide-ranging context that includes literary criticism, philosophy, psychology, technology, and politics.
"An important book that manages to say penetrating things both about the hybrid character of Anglo-American criticism and about the French theory that it imports and then proceeds to manhandle." -- Modern Language Review
