  • 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...

    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...

  • The Ego And His Ownby Max Stirner

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 17.95

    The Ego and His Own , the seminal defence of individualism, coloured the thinking of Friedrich Nietzsche, Max Ernst, Henrik Ibsen and Victor Serge, among many others, some of whom would vigorously deny any such influence in later years. Less reticent was Marcel Duchamp, who described Max Stirner as the philosopher most important to his work. Challenging... more...

  • Representing Capitalby Fredric Jameson

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 19.95

    Representing Capital , Fredric Jameson?s first book-length engagement with Marx?s magnum opus, is a unique work of scholarship that records the progression of Marx?s thought as if it were a musical score. The textual landscape that emerges is the setting for paradoxes and contradictions that struggle toward resolution, giving rise to new antinomies... 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. Neoliberalism is neither a return to classical liberalism nor the restoration of ?pure? capitalism. To misinterpret neoliberalism is to fail to understand what is new about... more...

  • Returning to Revolutionby Thomas Nail

    Edinburgh University Press 2012; US$ 104.00

    An account of the concept of revolution in the work of Deleuze and Guattari. We are witnessing the return of political revolution. However, this is not a return to the classical forms of revolution: the capture of the state, the political representation of the party, the centrality of the proletariat or the leadership of the vanguard. After the failure... more...

  • A Pragmatist Philosophy of Democracyby Robert B. Talisse

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 49.95

    In this book, Robert B. Talisse advances a series of pragmatic arguments against Deweyan democracy. Drawing upon the epistemology of the founder of pragmatism, Charles S. Peirce, Talisse develops a conception of democracy that is anti-Deweyan but nonetheless pragmatist. The result is a new pragmatist option in democratic theory. more...
