Transgression is truly a key idea for our time. Society is created by constraint and boundaries, but as our culture is increasingly subject to uncertainty and flux we find it more and more difficult to determine where those boundaries lie. In this fast moving study, Chris Jenks presents a sweeping overview of the history of ideas, the major theorists, and the significant moments in the formation of the idea of transgression. He looks at the definition of the social and its boundaries by Durkheim, Douglas, and Freud, at the German tradition of Hegel and Nietzsche, and the increasing preoccupation with transgression itself in Baudelaire, Bataille, and Foucault. The second half of the book looks at transgression in action in the East End myth of the Kray twins, in Artaud's theater of cruelty, the spectacle of the Situationists, and Bakhtin's analysis of carnival.
