Most of this book is written in -to me- incomprehensible jargon. As I know and admire Chantal Mouffe''s work for its clear exposition in excellent English , I can only presume Laclau is responsible. Moreover , in so far as I was able to understand some parts. it seems to be largely concerned with the history of Marxist theory and the contortions various thinkers put themselves through to accommodate the primacy of the economic base and the class nature of politics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good and matches the title 11 Jun. 2015
By Josh M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very good and matches the title. Could be more clear though, the table of contents in this one labels the major 4 parts of the book but none of the smaller but important ones such as The Dillemmas of Rosa Lexumburg.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good briefing on communism 13 Nov. 2014
By Samuel F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Overly verbose and intellectually dishonest, but it does provide good insight into the communist world view.
