It also 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
