Product Details


“The ferociously productive Slovenian philosopher now takes up one of those heavy, predictable, unpromising topics—totalitarianism—and manages to produce a whirling carnival of political critique, cultural interpretations, and ornery bombast.”—New Political Science

“As an alternative to the current post-modernist cult of cynicism and retreat into islands of privacy and nihilism … the five essays making up Did Somebody Say Totalitarianism? insist on the social link and offer the visionary strength for resistance against all forms of totalized explanations.”—World Literature Today

“This attempt to rethink the conditions of radical political action is one of a number of signs that, after the doldrums of the 1980s and 1990s, left-wing thought is beginning to revive. It will be fascinating to follow where the flood of eloquence and imagination next sweeps Slavoj Žižek.”—Times Literary Supplement

“Žižek is an entertaining writer who would command attention if he were just describing how to mix cement. He wastes no time in tilting at the taken-for-granted … Žižek wants to find the cracks in the notion of totalitarianism and fill them with dynamite.”—Times Higher Education Supplement
