Format: Paperback
A really good book, i personally found the first few chapters more useful. The whole book is written in an engaging and accessible style, despite the complex themses addressed. The dicussion of Michelet and Derrida really opens up these texts and i have constantly gone back to Steedmands no nonesense style to help me read Derrida etc. Definately worth buying.
