The essential texts for understanding Zizeks thought.

Slavoj Zizek, the maverick philosopher, author of over 30 books, acclaimed as the 'Elvis of cultural theory,' and todays most controversial public intellectual. His work traverses the fields of philosophy, psychoanalysis, theology, history and political theory, taking in film, popular culture, literature and jokes all to provide acute analyses of the complexities of contemporary ideology as well as a serious and sophisticated philosophy. His recent films The Perverts Guide to the Cinema and Zizek! reveal a theorist at the peak of his powers and a skilled communicator. Now Verso are making these four classic titles, that stand as the core of his ever-expanding lifes work, available as new editions. Each is beautifully repackaged, including new introductions from Zizek himself. Simply put, they are the essential texts for understanding Zizeks thought and thus cornerstones of contemporary philosophy.
