Revolution at the Gates
- Zizek on Lenin: The 1917 Writingsaf V. I. Lenin, Slavoj Zizek
The idea of a Lenin renaissance might well provoke an outburst of sarcastic laughter. Marx is ok, but Lenin? Doesn't he stand for a monumental catastrophe that left an indelible mark on all of subsequent history and political thinking? This title tackles the key question of whether this man can be reinvented in our era of cultural capitalism.
