A groundbreaking analysis of the roles of pleasure and desire in contemporary politics. Verso's beautifully designed Radical Thinkers series, which brings together seminal works by leading left-wing intellectuals, is a sophisticated blend of theory and thought. The authors whose writings are included in the series have worked tirelessly to expose the mechanisms by which culture and knowledge are manufactured, managed and controlled. -- Ziauddin Sardar, New Statesman
