Zizek and Politics : A Critical Introduction Paperback / softback

Description

In Zizek and Politics, Geoff Boucher and Matthew Sharpe go beyond standard introductions to spell out a new approach to reading Zizek, one that can be highly critical as well as deeply appreciative.

They show that Zizek has a raft of fundamental positions that enable his theoretical positions to be put to work on practical problems.

Explaining these positions with clear examples, they outline why Zizek's confrontation with thinkers such as Derrida, Foucault and Deleuze has so radically changed how we think about society.

They then go on to track Zizek's own intellectual development during the last twenty years, as he has grappled with theoretical problems and the political climate of the War on Terror.

This book is a major addition to the literature on Zizek and a crucial critical introduction to his thought.
