'In the best sense of political philosophy as understood by Gilles Deleuze... Arditi invents new concepts... he has the extraordinary ability to achieve clarity while dealing with very arcane and sophisticated aspects of political thought.' Michael J. Shapiro, University of Hawaii 'Arditi's approach is thoughtful and provocative... On populism, in particular, he is brilliant. This book is essential reading for those who are interested in democracy, emancipatory politics, radical alternatives, and critical thinking. It is political theory at its best.' Andreas Kalyvas, New School for Social Research 'Right at the cutting edge of contemporary theory.' Terrell Carver, University of Bristol 'Arditi is a theorist of political activism. This book is extremely well-versed in both traditional and radical Continental and Anglo-American political and cultural theory... Arditi surveys, analyses and takes what is best from any political theory and deploys it in the development of new concepts.' Culture Machine Politics on the Edges of Liberalism Difference, Populism, Revolution, Agitation Benjamin Arditi Arditi tackles four key areas in contemporary politics which work at 'the edges of liberalism': difference, populism, revolution and agitation-emancipation. Each of these phenomena is selected because they push the envelope of liberalism or seek to go against and beyond it. Difference is explored in the context of the politics of the culture wars and its celebration of particularism over universalism. Populism is seen as a spectre of liberal democracy, able to both accompany it and haunt it. Agitation is considered in tandem with emancipatory politics and in relation to revolutionary politics. The final chapter aims to vindicate the use of revolution for contemporary thought, challenging the existing liberal-democratic consensus.
