Reviews

"A characteristically enjoyable development of his recent journalistic commentary (Berlusconi as Kung Fu Panda), which digs joyfully into the ideological cracks of the financial crisis so as to enlarge them, and declares confidently that 'The future will thus be communist ... or socialist'." Steven Poole, Guardian "Electrifying - Revel in the way he can zero in on the absurdities and contradictions of the modern world." - Nick Lezard, Guardian, "A typically trenchant account of the farce of capitalism and future of communism, which in Zizek's hands is a flaming red banner confronting and affronting the deadly grey of capitalist conformity, confirming him as one of our most daring and unsparing contemporary thinkers." Times Higher Education Supplement "Zizek, a Marxist, writes with passion and an aphoristic energy that is spellbinding - a great provocateur and an immensely suggestive and even dashing writer." LA Times
