Product Description

Review

"[I]nsightful. . . ."
"
"
--Charles J. Stivale, "Substance"

"[A] noteworthy and ambitious project . . . ."
--Kalliopi Nikolopoulou, "Symploke"

"[A]n interesting contribution to the Deleuze literature."
--A. D. Schrift, "Choice"

"[A] refreshingly sympathetic treatment. . . . [An] outstanding volume. . . ."
--Ronald Bogue, "The Comparatist"

""Deleuzism" is not just a piece of standard academic scholarship. Buchanan reads with and through Deleuze."
--Oliver C. Speck, "Ephemera Reviews"

"With this example, we might locate a new prescription and perhaps a new style of commentary on Deleuze's philosophy."
--Gregg Lambert, "Southern Review"

"[P]rovides a compelling answer to one of the most difficult questions facing 'Deleuzians': 'how should one read Deleuze?'. . . . [R]ecommend[ed] for its insights into Deleuze and, even, for some of the uses of Deleuze that [Buchanan] offers. . . ."
--Post-Structuralism and Radical Politics Newsletter

"The reader of this book will welcome the way that the study, for the most part an extended and exhaustive comparison of the concepts of whole and totality in Deleuze and Fredric Jameson, will find a common space, the movie theater, where the American and French philosopher are likely to meet. Therein begins common speculation on the medium and what we can do with it."
--Tom Conley, "Quarterly Review of Film and Video"

“Buchanan’s approach to Deleuze is entirely original. He gets outside of Deleuzianism and gives us a fresh view on his thought—not refuting it but rather seeing it from a different perspective and then using it in a different way.”—Michael Hardt, Duke University

“An engaging and provocative treatment of the principal features of Deleuze’s philosophy and their applicability to cultural studies. Buchanan’s metacommentary should go a long way toward renewing discussions of Deleuze’s status as a radical social and political philosopher.”—Ronald Bogue, University of Georgia

“Buchanan’s book is a ground-breaking, comprehensive examination of the thought of Gilles Deleuze work that ranges widely across Deleuze’s solo and coauthored works as well as popular music, architecture, and film, and raises important new questions about the relations of Deleuzism to dialectics, utopian thought, and cultural studies. It is sure to be an essential point of reference for further Deleuze studies.”—Gene Holland

Format: Paperback
Everyone knows Deleuze is hard to read, that's what makes it fun. So you don't want baby books that talk down to you to explain his work. And let's face it, that's what most of the introductions to his work do. They treat you like a child. It is such a relief then to read Deleuzism - it not only treats you like a grown-up, it also demonstrates what you can do with Deleuze. No other work on Deleuze that I've read does that. This book has great things to say about pop music, architecture (a great riff on the bonaventure), but also blade runner and 19thC fiction!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and Comprehensive 9 Sept. 2001
By Brian Dooley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wow! Despite some small qualms with the author regarding deleuze and popular music this book is right on. The ability of Mr. Buchanan to read deleuze outside current trends is amazing and breaths some much needed fresh air into deleuzian studies as a whole. Please do not be turned off by his claim of deleuze being in some respects a dialectitian since it is not the same dialectic that deleuze condemns throughout his work. Again if you are into deleuzian studies and are looking for a fresh interp. of how to read this amazing and insightful philosopher, this book should point you in the right direction.
