What happens when deconstruction reads politics? This collection of essays by some of Derrida's most significant readers thinks through deconstruction's relation to politics by explicating the text of Derrida in relation to political examples. Neither 'deconstruction' nor 'reading' nor 'politics' is left untouched in the encounters explored by the contributors to this volume. This book dispels any notion of the separation of deconstruction from the everyday and demonstrates the importance of deconstructive thought for the political.
MARTIN MCQUILLAN is Professor of Cultural Theory and Analysis at the University of Leeds, UK. His recent publications include Textual Activism: deconstruction after 9/11 and The Politics of Deconstruction: Jacques Derrida and the Other of Philosophy.
