        ISBN 9780415312769

      1. Salecl presents a brief and witty diagnosis of our contemporary age of anxiety, drawing on psychoanalysis, feminist, and critical theory notions to explore everything from war’s representation in the mass media to the explosion in the use of anti-depressant drugs. See in particular chapter 2 Anxiety at Times of War and chapter 3 Success in Failure: How Hypercapitalism Relies on People’s Feelings of Inadequacy.
