  • First As Tragedy, Then As Farceby Slavoj Zizek

    Verso Books 2009; US$ 12.95

    Billions of dollars have been hastily poured into the global banking system in a frantic attempt at financial stabilization. So why has it not been possible to bring the same forces to bear in addressing world poverty and environmental crisis? In this take-no-prisoners analysis, Slavoj Žižek frames the moral failures of the modern world in terms of... more...

  • In Defense of Lost Causesby Slavoj Zizek

    Verso Books 2009; US$ 21.95

    In this combative major new work, philosophical sharpshooter Slavoj Žižek looks for the kernel of truth in the totalitarian politics of the past. Examining Heidegger?s seduction by fascism and Foucault?s flirtation with the Iranian Revolution, he suggests that these were the ?right steps in the wrong direction.? On the revolutionary terror of Robespierre,... more...

  • Living in the End Timesby Slavoj Zizek

    Verso Books 2011; US$ 22.95

    The underlying premise of the book is a simple one: the global capitalist system is approaching an apocalyptic zero-point. Its four riders of the apocalypse are the ecological crisis, the consequences of the biogenetic revolution, the imbalances within the system itself (problems with intellectual property, the forthcoming struggle for raw materials,... more...

  • Staging the Peopleby Jacques Ranciere; David Fernbach

    Verso Books 2011; US$ 29.95

    These essays from the 1970s mark the inception of the distinctive project that Jacques Rancičre has pursued across forty years, with four interwoven themes: the study of working-class identity, of its philosophical interpretation, of ?heretical? knowledge and of the relationship between work and leisure. For the short-lived journal Les Révoltes Logiques... more...

  • Liberty and Propertyby Ellen Meiksins Wood

    Verso Books 2012; US$ 26.95

    The formation of the modern state, the rise of capitalism, the Renaissance and Reformation, the scientific revolution and the Age of Enlightenment have all been attributed to the ?early modern? period. Nearly everything about its history remains controversial, but one thing is certain: it left a rich and provocative legacy of political ideas unmatched... more...

  • Towards a New Manifestoby Theodor Adorno; Max Horkheimer

    Verso Books 2011; US$ 14.95

    A thrilling example of philosophy in action, Towards a New Manifesto reveals the fathers of critical theory, Adorno and Horkheimer, in a uniquely spirited and free-flowing exchange of ideas. A record of their discussions over three weeks in the spring of 1956, recorded with a view to writing a contemporary version of The Communist Manifesto , this... more...

  • The Rebirth of Historyby Alain Badiou; Gregory Elliott

    Verso Books 2012; US$ 19.95

    In the uprisings of the Arab world, Alain Badiou discerns echoes of the European revolutions of 1848. In both cases, the object was to overthrow despotic regimes maintained by the great powers?regimes designed to impose the will of financial oligarchies. Both events occurred after what was commonly thought to be the end of a revolutionary epoch: in... more...

  • Enlightenment Volume 1by Peter Gay

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2013; US$ 28.95

    The eighteenth century Enlightenment marks the beginning of the modern age when the scientific method and belief in reason and progress came to hold sway over the Western world. In the twentieth century, however, the Enlightenment has often been judged harshly for its apparently simplistic optimism. Here a master historian goes back to the sources... more...

  • On The Reproduction Of Capitalismby Louis Althusser; Etienne Balibar

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 29.95

    Louis Althusser?s renowned short text ?Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses? radically transformed the concept of the subject, the understanding of the state and even the very frameworks of cultural, political and literary theory. The text has influenced thinkers such as Judith Butler, Ernesto Laclau and Slavoj Žižek. The piece is, in fact,... more...

  • The New Way Of The Worldby Pierre Dardot; Christian Laval; Gregory Elliott

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 29.95

    Exploring the genesis of neoliberalism, and the political and economic circumstances of its deployment, Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval dispel numerous common misconceptions.
