Om boka

The second volume of the key writings of leading contemporary cultural commentator, Slavoj Zizek. Collecting together a broad selection of Zizek's major writings on politics, The Universal Exception showcases his formidable range of interests and his style. The book includes his writings on such right-wing icons as Ayn Rand and Leni Riefenstahl; his take on the logic of capitalism and the condition of contemporary radical politics; and his views on major current global issues and events, including the Iraq war. Together with Interrogating the Real, the first volume of Zizek's selected writings, this collection offers a superb introduction to the work of this prolific, controversial and vastly entertaining cultural commentator.
