The Borrowed Kettle

At Lacan.com you, and your readers, can find for free a small piece called "Iraq's false promises" which is the core of the book you've reviewed. Also, some other texts, including a great piece on Hitchcock that he read in Buenos Aires (but that one is in spanish).
Incidentaly, I'm from Buenos Aires, and Zizek is living here right now. He's getting married to a model called Analia Hounie, a girl some 30 years younger than him. They will live here till she finishes school.
great review, Mark...you really make me want to check that book out!
thanks, rob!!! can't say it's any better than any of his others, but it's a real pleasure to read, and a real advert for the relevance of theory....
Buenos Aires, eh, Hernan? A girl thirty years younger than him? That sounds like the life...
Given that he must be into his 50s, I don't think that the New Scotland Yard Paedophile Unit need concern themselves really...
You were attempting to establish a general principle, Sonny.
I have witnesses.
LOL... a general principle for what men in their fifties might like, not a general principle for all men... but haven't you got better things to do, DS?
Not now Sidney Cooke's safely in orbit.
Yeah, I heard this thing about Slovoj's new lady too - though there seems to be some confusion as to whether she's a model, or an academic, or both. Personally, I really hope she's a hot 25-year-old genius with an international career in modelling and lecturing. And that's she's really into political terrorism...mmmm.....
good review, Mark. The wider points about how any flight from global capital will still have to enage in some way with market forces and how that links in with an Islamic fundamentalism that is intrinsically backward are of particular interest. As an ignorant, can you tell me where to go in cyberspace for De Landa?

this is a good one to start with:
'Markets and anti-markets in the world economy'.
good work Mark, will check out the book.
