Description

One of our most famous, most combative philosophers explains how we can find a way out of the crisis of capitalism

There is obviously trouble in the global capitalist paradise. But why do we find it so difficult to imagine a way out of the crisis we're in? It is as if the trouble feeds on itself: the march of capitalism has become inexorable, the only game in town.

Setting out to diagnose the condition of global capitalism, the ideological constraints we are faced with in our daily lives, and the bleak future promised by this system, Slavoj ?i?ek explores the possibilities -- and the traps -- of new emancipatory struggles.

Drawing insights from phenomena as diverse as "Gangnam Style" to Marx, The Dark Knight to Thatcher, Trouble in Paradise is an incisive dissection of the world we inhabit, and the new order to come.

"Few thinkers illustrate the contradictions of contemporary capitalism better than Slavoj ?i?ek... One of the world's best-known public intellectuals." -- John Gray, New York Review of Books
