Zizek, Slavoj (Author/Subject) & Daly, Glyn (Contributor). CONVERSATIONS WITH SLAVOJ ZIZEK. Cambridge, England: Polity Press, 2004. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 175 pages. Fine.

Retrospective collection of interviews. The single most accessible and illuminating introduction to the ground-breaking and influential philosophy and cultural criticism of Slavoj Zizek. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United Kingdom. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only by a small, independent press. Without DJ, as issued. There is no American Edition. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents "Conversations With Slavoj Zizek". Bristling with ideas, provocations, and insights from the post-modern exemplar of the Renaissance Man. "A series of entertaining conversations that illustrate the originality of Zizek's thinking on psychoanalysis, philosophy, multiculturalism, popular-cyber culture, totalitarianism, ethics, and politics. Provides a unique glimpse of Zizek's humor and character, and offers new material and fresh perspectives, which will be of interest even to the most devoted followers of Zizek's writings" (Publisher's blurb). "Everything one expects from him, a heady mix of psychoanalysis, politics, theology, philosophy, and cultural studies that will leave the reader exhilarated. An excellent introduction to Zizek by Zizek" (Marcus Pound). "The Master of the counter-intuitive observation" (The New Yorker Magazine). "I always have a certain admiration for people who are aware that somebody has to do the job. What I hate about these liberal, pseudo-left, beautiful-soul academics is that they are fully aware that somebody else will do the job for them" (Slavoj Zizek). An absolute "must-have" title for Slavoj Zizek collectors. This title is a great collection. This is one of very few copies of the First British Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. It is, quite simply, the single most beautiful copy we have ever seen. Please note: The First Hardcover Edition was issued without a DJ. There is NO American Edition. A scarce copy thus. One of the greatest writer/thinkers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SLAVOJ ZIZEK TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0745628966. $150.00
