A genealogy of fanaticism-unearthing its long history, before it became a tool in the Clash of Civilizations.

About the Author

Alberto Toscano is a lecturer in sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London. He is the author of The Theatre of Production and Fanaticism, translator of Alain Badiou's The Century and Logics of Worlds and co-editor of Alain Badiou's Theoretical Writings and On Beckett. He has published numerous articles on contemporary philosophy, politics and social theory, and is an editor of Historical Materialism.


Succinct yet expansively allusive in scope, dense yet highly readable, Fanaticism is a multi-levelled investigation into the role that the idea of the fanatic has played in political discourse. -- Mark Fisher * Frieze *
A tour de force in every sense-Toscano wipes the smug smiles off the self-righteous faces of the New Philosophers. -- Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums
By the end he has at irrefutably demolished our lazy opposition between rational-moderate liberalism and "fanatical" religion; while his sorrowful comparison of modern blowhards with "the great reactionaries of yesterday" is a slyly humorous touch. -- Steven Poole * The Guardian *
