Radford (Fairleigh Dickinson U.) has written an engaging study of the semiotic philosophy of Umberto Eco designed for the popular reader of Eco's fiction as well as undergraduate students in history, literary theory, or communication. Eco's use of semiotics, his treatment of the relationship between text and reader, the applicability of the detective genre to Eco's philosophy, and the nature of Eco's existence as an author are described, with many examples from the full range of Eco's writing.
