The Universal Exception is the second volume of the selected writings of Slavoj Žižek—one of the most provocative and inspiring writers on culture at work today.

Slavoj Žižek is one of the world’s foremost cultural commentators: a prolific writer and thinker, whose adventurous, unorthodox and wide-ranging writings have won him a unique place as one of the most high profile thinkers of our time. The Universal Exception brings together some of Žižek’s most vivid writings on politics. Bringing together high theory, popular culture and passionate engagement with politics, Žižek here brings us startlingly new perspectives on such topics as multiculturalism, capitalism and Bill Gates, the revolutionary potential of Stalinism, the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and the war in Iraq.

Together with Interrogating the Real, the first volume of Žižek’s selected writings, this collection offers a superb introduction to the work of this prolific, controversial and vastly entertaining cultural commentator.
