This book offers a close reading of Adorno??s more explicitly political writings and his work on fascist and anti-Semitic propaganda, and argues for the continuing relevance of these works for contemporary political practice. Adorno??s criticism of political violence and mass movements has, surprisingly, yet to be brought to bear upon contemporary developments in critical theory in the vein of Slavoj Žižek and Alan Badiou. Since a significant portion of this book is dedicated to offering an Adornian response to Žižek, it situates Adorno in the contemporary discussion on strategies for resistance to global capitalism.To view this DRM protected ebook on your desktop or laptop you will need to have Adobe Digital Editions installed.
