        How to Read Lacan

        Slavoj Žižek

        London: Granta Books 2006

        ISBN 9781862078949

      1. Part of Granta’s primer ‘How to’ series, this book provides both an introduction to the psychoanalytic thinking of Jacques Lacan, but also sheds light on Žižek’s body of work because it is deeply informed by Lacanian analysis. See in particular chapter 7 The Perverse Subject of Politics: Lacan as a Reader of Mohammed Bouyeri (Bouyeri is the Islamic extremist who murdered Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh in 2004.)
