Annotation

"Accordingly, Zizek's work demands a rigorous critical assessment. The Truth of Zizek is a major response to this demand: addressing the full range of Zizek's interventions and critically assessing the political, philosophical, psychoanalytical, cultural and institutional stakes of his ideas. The Truth of Zizek provides the first sustained assessment of the significant impact of Zizek's work."--Jacket.
