John Frow is Professor of English at the University of Queensland.
`...astute and judicious unfolding of the problem of value in cultural studies.' Times Literary Studies `lively and engrossing book ... Frow deftly exposes the weaknesses of relativism showing that it does not so much resolve as side-step the problem of value.' Times Higher Education Supplement `Frow's argument, though conducted in rather forbidding prose, is frequently brilliant' Peter Schwendener, The American Scholar, Volume 65, No. 3, Summer 1996
