Arthur Asa Berger, retired professor from San Francisco State University, is the author of over 40 books, including the mystery novel/textbook Postmortem for a Postmodernist and The Kabblah Killings and editor of The Postmodern Presence: Readings on Postmodernism in American Culture and Society.


Berger approaches his subject not as a scientist, peering through the microscope to produce a precise dissection but as an artist, and then not a miniaturist but as a presenter of landscapes brought to our attention by a collection of bold brush strokes borrowed for present purposes from any number of schools and pressed into service to create a wonderfully evocative and interesting pastiche... Berger is at his best when discussing travel writing. Tourist Studies
