Deleuze and Guattari's first collaborative effort, "Anti-Oedipus, " radicalized postmodernism and poststructuralist philosophy. Eugene W. Holland provides the first accessible and comprehensive introduction to this vastly complicated work..
Holland explores how Deleuze and Guattari negotiate the interactions between the three main materialist thinkers of modernity, Freud, Marx and Nietzsche, and examines the role of schizoanalysis, Deleuze and Guattari's radical materialist psychiatry. An indispensable guide to "Anti-Oedipus, " this book celebrates not only the importance and rigor of the philosophers' work, but also highlights its lasting implications in the continuous debates on marxism, environmentalism and feminism.

Industry Reviews

"Holland admirably faces the challenge of opening up Deleuze and Guattari's notoriously difficult Anti-Oedipus" not only to newcomers, but also to experienced readers of their works, who will thereby benefit enormously from the clarity and rigor of Holland's study ." -Charles J. Stivale, Wayne State University
