Pressestimmen"The Abyss of Representation is an ambitious and highly illuminating book. It is the best study I have read on this particular appropriation of Lacanian theory by Zizek and its differences with other readings of Lacan's work, and the discussions on Althusser and Jameson are particularly original and convincing."

Michael Bernard-Donals, coauthor of Between Witness and Testimony: The Holocaust and the Limits of Representation
