Reviews
"Magnificently stirring ... a characteristically lucid polemic from a philosopher who is far from willing to abandon humanity to the vicissitudes of so-called global capitalism."--Mark Fisher, Frieze

"In the tradition of revolutionary pamphleteering."--Michael Cronin, Irish Times

"Compelling ... He deconstructs, with languid, sarcastic ferocity, the notion that 'France chose Sarkozy' ... a very French piece of political venom."--Rafael Behr, The Observer

"Heir to Jean-Paul Sartre and Louis Althusser ... a thundering, rallying tirade."--Lucy Wadham, New Statesman

"Incisive, incredibly readable and funny critique."--Christopher Bickerton, Le Monde Diplomatique
