I am interested in reading a book of Zizek's, but one that is more based in history and popular culture and less on theory. I have read his essay on the French Terror. I got copies of his essay on Cyberspace and Courtly Love.
Also anybody else you know of doing readings of film, literature, revolutionary politics in a way like Zizek that has emerged in the last 20 years? I am a bit behind the times and havent read much after 1980 or so.
In "In Defense of Lost Causes" he makes use of popular films, including "Goodbye Lenin." He basically makes the same argument in different registers, so he'll start with a thesis and analyze from a slightly different angle using many different films and examples. "In Defense" argues for going back retroactively and retrieving whatever emancipatory kernels there may have been in Leninism.
"Perverts Guide to Cinema" analyzes The Marx Brothers, Hitchcock, Lynch, and others from a Lacanian angle.
As for anybody out there doing analysis similar to Zizek, maybe Judith Butler......... He's pretty original in his use of pop culture.
