This year marks the 20th anniversary of the publication of Žižek’s first book in English, The Sublime Object of Ideology, and Verso marks this milestone with the publication of The Essential Žižek – four classic titles, beautifully redesigned and featuring new introductions by Žižek himself.
Slavoj Žižek – maverick philosopher, polymath, film star, author of over 30 books, and acclaimed as the ‘Elvis of cultural theory’- is one of the most controversial and leading contemporary public intellectuals.
He offers a relentless critique of capitalism and has breathed new life into Marxism by attempting to wrest it from the stifling grasp of the liberal Left. Now, with the financial crisis propagating a global recession and with unrest across Europe, his arguments have never felt more necessary.
