In the face of economic meltdown, Slavoj Zizek asks what the future is for global capitalism. As governments take over banks, has Zizek's call for a radical 're-politicisation of the economy' come to pass? And does the Western democratic two-party system allow scope for real change?

'The most formidably brilliant exponent of psychoanalysis, indeed of cultural theory in general, to have emerged in many decades' (Terry Eagleton).

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the publication of Slavoj Zizek’s first book in English. To celebrate the anniversary Verso are publishing four of his classic books as the Essential Zizek series.
