This review is from: Emancipation(s) (Phronesis) (Paperback)
I am not a Marxist and have no wish to comment on this book as an especially Marxist work. But I greatly enjoyed reading it and, seeing the derogatory one star that someone saw fit to give it here, it seems necessary to say so. Whatever else it is, it is an intelligent and well written text of considerable learning. After reading it, in fact, I became a bit of a Laclau fan. I am reading other of his books. His style is compelling and satisfying to read. As to the arguments , discussing political values, strategies, etc, Laclau is honest and engaged; looking at history and the nature of populist politics. It is clearly akin to his own background.
