Editorial Reviews

Review

"Holland admirably faces the challenge of opening up Deleuze and Guattari's notoriously difficult Anti-Oedipus" not only to newcomers, but also to experienced readers of their works, who will thereby benefit enormously from the clarity and rigor of Holland's study
."
-Charles J. Stivale, Wayne State University

Format: Paperback
anti-oedipus is one bear of a book. i have wrestled with it numerous times, only to repeatedly concede defeat somewhere around page one fifty. it was about then that i would realize i was in over my head, my knowledge of lacan and klein (and even freud to some extent) too narrow to be able to grasp its deeper significance. for one must have a sound knowledge of psychoanalysis to understand why the oedipus is something that merits a good fight. nevertheless, this book continued to fascinate, with its staggering range of knowledge and peculiar prose style calling me back time and again over the past few years. i could not leave a bookstore without passing a few moments away in the philosophy section, in hopes of finding something to assist in my study. i made an attempt with brian massumi's "a user's guide," but was left a little disappointed, finding it to be almost as difficult as anti-oedipus itself. thankfully, eugene holland's "an introduction" has proved a perfect fit. he has performed a great service to readers such as myself (i know that you're out there, somewhere) by walking one through step by step, with brief interludes explicating those thinkers who influenced the writing of anti-oedipus (such as spinoza and bataille), and illustrating each of it key concepts in relation to the revolutionary praxis it demands. he is the consumate teacher here, demanding but patient. for these are difficult ideas for the uninitiated, but with persistance this book should open up the thinking of deleuze and guatarri for any thoughtful reader. now that i have read it, i am looking forward to giving massumi's book another try, as well as another go around with the bear itself.
thank you mr. holland for this great gift.

...well not really, but it did help make the hours and hours and hours I spent reading Anti-Oedipus a much more fullfilling, meaningful experience, and for that, I am extremely grateful.

Listen, swallow your pride, even if you do make it all the way through Anti-Oedipus without any help, you are in all likelyhood doing yourself a disservice; there are so many elements at work, that unless you are a genius, and read multitudes of books, you are a not going to get everything you could out of the book.

For instance, have you read Difference and Repeition by Guattari? How about Masochism: An Interpretation of Coldness and Cruelty also by Guattari? Because the themes and points made in those books are used in Anti-Oedipus, and, as the author Eugene W. Holland says, it is taken for granted you already know that stuff.

I read a lot to prepare for Anti-Oedipus, but it is practically impossible to have read and comprehended everything that is used by Deleuze and Guattari. For instance you must know Freud cold (especially Oedipus, the death instinct, and stuff on the drives), Lacan, the anti psychiatrists like R.D.

I tried unsuccessfully to read Anti-Oedipus last year. I was baffled and felt completley out of my depth. About a month ago I decided to start reading "towards" this text again, based on the unfamiliar references from my last attempt. So, I have read some secondary liturature on Freud, reread Neitzsche's Beyond Good and Evil, brushed up on Marx and Foucault, and am about to start Dor's introduction to Lacan. Also, I am simultaineously reading this book, and Massumi's users guide. This process is working well for me, and I am begining to understand? whats going on in Anti-Oedipus. Hollands book is challenging, but it does provide a strong foundation to walk across while approaching the primary text. One of the best introductions I have come across.

Excellent integration of the personal and the social as the combined reality by which we live by desire, both artificially socially in our history of primitive savagery, despotism and caitalism as well as personally via Freudian Oedipalism as neurotic, perverse or schizophrenic. Deleuze and Guattari offer us the alternative genuine life via schizoanalysis to navigate the rock of capitalism and the hard place of Oedipal artifice via the nomadic process of productive desire.
