Review:

'Politics Most Unusual is a significant contribution to the substantial literature taking a broadly 'critical' perspective on the nature of post-9/11 politics. Its key strength is the engagement with a psychoanalytic approach to understanding the nature and significance of neglected aspects of religion and prejudice in contemporary political life and the ways in which 'spin', dissimulation and straightforward lying have ceased to be the mortal sins of politics that they once were. The authors deserve credit for this significant contribution to debate in this field.' John Williams, Contemporary Political Theory
