15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Rudolph V. Dusek on December 19, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The selections are very good choices. I have ecommended this book to students discussing the nature of ideology. Zizek is trendy now, so his introduction will be of interest. Several New Left Review pieces, such as the translations of Adorno, Althusser and Lacan, as well as articles by Dews, Therborn, Bourdieu and Eagleton's piece, as well as that by Abercrombie, Hill, and Turnerare included. Also several selections from Verso books, such as selections from Eagleton and Zizek himself.
One limitation of this anthology, partly because of the concentration on NLR sources and Verso books, and partly because of the theoretical orientation of the editor and publishers, as a survey of ideology is the lack of pieces by such writers and Marx and Engels, Lukacs, Mannheim and Lenin, which set the parameters for traditional notions of ideology. James Curtis' and John Petras' larger, older (1970) anthology on the Sociology of Knowledge includes these as well as less well known and non-Marxist German writers on the subject, such as Max Scheler and Wilhelm Jerusalem. This anthology is much more up to date, but the lack of the classical early 20th C sources make it less of an introduction to the subject than it could be.
