5.0 out of 5 stars Explanation and explication without loss of complexity, 8 May 2008

Deleuze and Guattari's 'capitalism and schizophrenia' project, of which Anti-Oedipus is the first part (and A Thousand Plateaus the second) is a majestic, creative, non-linear journey through literature, psychoanalysis, politics, mathematics and beyond. It is an incredibly rich resource for some seriously interesting and innovative approaches to a huge range of concerns both contemporary and historical. However, people have often struggled to make use of such an unwieldy beast. It is not easy to trace Deleuze and Guattari along their apparently crazy but actually totally systematic journey, and to extract the essence of their thought in a way that can be used. Too often, 'readers' guides' to their work have sacrificed subtlety and complexity for clarity, therefore losing what is so essential about Deleuze and Guattari. This one does not. While keeping a keen eye on the utility of Deleuze and Guattari in a manner in which they would have approved, 'Anti-Oedipus: a Readers' Guide' demonstrates the ways in which Anti-Oedipus can be used as a tool for criticism and analysis today. In the course of this demonstration, new dimensions to Anti-Oedipus are exposed and its wealth becomes not only apparent but also undaunting. Essential reading for students of literature, criticism and culture, as well as everyone with an interest in Deleuze and Guattari.

This review is from: Deleuze and Guattari's "Anti-Oedipus" (Paperback)
This book is wonderful to read. It gives vital information about Anti-Oedipus, Deleuze and Guattari's co-operative project, its context, and groundbreaking theory. It does so without tiring the reader. It has a refined language with a sense of humour and this is what I loved most about this book. Buchanan's explanatins of Deleuze and Guattari's theory offers a very enjoyable read... It is a must-read if you are thinking about plunging into Anti Oedipus.
