Such detailed and sophisticated English-language analyses of German anti-authoritarian theory and its reception are rare, and the book addresses a lacuna, too, in exploring a fascinating group of texts on which...almost nothing, to date, has been published in English. Thus, 'The Radical Subject' succeeds very well in its aim of providing an interdisciplinary study of the connections between writing and politics in the field in question.
