In this collection of writings, Zizek (philosophy, U. of Ljubljana, Slovakia) takes his inquiry about culture and politics into specific world events. Like the first volume in this series, Interrogating the Real, Zizek covers a range of topics with a unique understanding of radicalism and a distinct take on “third way” politics, with commentary on the absence of the “second way” in remarks on Haider and Heiner Muller, socialism as it truly exists within Kukacs and Kolkhoz and perhaps, but perhaps not in opposition to Laibach, and capitalism at it exists in facets of Bill Gates. He closes with commentary on what is and is not to be done, given events in Iraq and the “double blackmail” of terrorism, whether or not it is state supported.
