Architecture Against the Post-Political represents a landmark moment in architectural theory. Fighting against a strong de-politicization of the theory and criticism surrounding the subject, this volume brings the full weight of recent critical philosophy to bear on the act of theorizing architecture. - Todd McGowan, Associate Professor at The University of Vermont Can a democratizing and emancipatory architectural theory and practice be reclaimed from the debilitating debris of post-political consensual technocracy and the obscene jouissance of post-modern nihilism? This book offers courageous answers and a timely foray into reopening a political space for architecture.- Erik Swyngedouw, Professor of Geography at The University of Manchester
