Zizek is hailed as the most significant interdisciplinary thinkerof modern times. His work is a powerful, often explosivecombination of Lacanian psychoanalysis and philosophy which testskey psychoanalytical concepts against the ideas of major Europeanthinkers, especially Hegel. It has ignited enthusiasm andstimulated new approaches across a vast range of disciplines, andseems to be attracting an ever-growing readership. In part, this isbecause Zizek himself has a panoramic range of interestsencompassing film studies, literature, cyber culture, ethics,theology and, above all, politics. It is also because he is ahighly entertaining writer, having a flair for anecdote, a smuttysense of humour and the knack of capturing complex ideas inconcrete form.
Sarah Kay's book provides a lucid and comprehensive introduction toZizek's work. His writings to date are presented and evaluated herefor the first time, together with an outline of their developmentand explanations of his key premises, themes and terms. This bookwill be essential reading for students of cultural studies,literary studies, philosophy and social and political theory.

Review:

"Kay's introduction is a much more thorough and rigorous study, andher elucidation of the influence of German idealism on Zizek'sthinking is by far the best of any of the introductions underconsideration."

Sean Homer, Gramma
