Reviews

A witty, informative trip...both erudite and accessible...

--Rick Mitchell, Leonardo Reviews

His writing is bold, confident and contentious.

--Julian Baggini, The Philosopher's Magazine

The Puppet and the Dwarf is Zizek's most compelling and passionate writing on Christianity to date.

--Erik Davis, Bookforum

Quite possibly the most entertaining philosopher working today. Zizek knows how to think the unthinkable.

--Jori Finkel, Village Voice

Slavoj Zizek may have the strongest 'brand identity'...of any cultural theorist now in the marketplace of ideas.

--Scott McLemee, The Chronicle of Higher Education

Zizek is the first Marxist to write theology in a post-marxist, post-secular age.

--Eugene McCarraher, In These Times

...Zizek mixes Pauline speculations with analyses of everything from G. K. Chesterton to chocolate eggs.

--Terry Eagleton, TLS

Zizekrarely fails to entertain...

--Library Journal
