      1. A good introduction to understanding the work of Slavoj Žižek, one of the most brilliant, prolific, and hard-to-pin-down theorists of our time. From Žižek’s dozens of publications Dean synthesizes his basic positions and key thematic interests, and in so doing brings to the fore his commitment to the work of real politics (as opposed to just hyperintellectualizing, as he is often charged with doing). Particularly useful in the context of FW are Chapter 2 ‘Fascism and Stalinism’ and the conclusion ‘Revolution Today.’
