Format: Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Main thing to note is that this book is based on live interviews so it reads as a series of conversations rather than a single piece of prose. In fact, that seems to suit Zizek well, and probably makes for a more readable treatment of his takes on various topics such as the Arab Spring, the global financial crisis, North Korea, the rise of China etc. etc. all fo which he covers here (among others). His analyses of Hollywood films, Swedish crime fiction and the rest called to mind one of his earlier books, Enjoy Your Symptom! (a brilliant guide to cinema and psychoanalysis which I highly recommend). At the end of the day he's a divisive figure -I like the guy and for me this serves as a pretty decent introduction to his less heavy-going side (as oppose to his more overtly scholastic work, such as, say, his recent account of Hegelian Dialectical Materialism, Less Than Nothing, which was, frankly, beyond me).
