Design After Modernism (book)

After reading a couple of references to John Thakara's 'Design After Modernism' I ordered a used copy which arrived yesterday. I'm really glad I did because it looks like it covers a lot of the precedents for the work I am doing in my research. I really found a lot of value in Thackara's latest 'In the Bubble'. I think 'Design After Modernism' might be out of print because I could only find used copies online. I also could not find a table of contents for it. So in the interests of public service:

About

I am exploring a hybrid form of art and design practice through the use of computer-based design and fabrication tools. I am interested in experimental objects and spaces that are dynamic and responsive and seek to challenge perceptions, expectations and established behavior.
