'The elegant theorist, the man who redefined the concept of "ideology"'--Alice Kaplan, Los Angeles Review of Books 'One of the most important Marxist thinkers of the twentieth century ... nothing short of electric. His renewal of Marxism represented a liberation for a younger generation' --Radical Philosophy "One reads him with excitement. There is no mystery about his capacity to inspire the intelligent young."--Eric Hobsbawm "Louis Althusser influenced so many discourses, actions and existences by the radiant and provocative force of his thought."--Jacques Derrida
