About the book

Continuum’s Reader’s Guides are clear, concise accessible introductions to classic works of philosophy. Each book explores the major themes, historical and philosophical context and key passages of a major philosophical text, guiding the reader toward a thorough understanding of often demanding material. Ideal for undergraduate students, the guides provide an essential resource for anyone who needs to get to grips with a philosophical text. ‘Ian Buchanan is to Deleuze and Guattari what Stavoj Žižek is to Lacan. He uses history and humour to explain one of the twentieth century’s most important works’. Claire Colebrook, Professor of English Literature University of Edinburgh, UK. ‘This book is indispensable for both devotees of Deleuze/Guattari and critics of contemporary capitalism.’ William E. Connolly, Krieger-Eisenhower Professor of Political Sciences, Johns Hopkins University, USA. Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus is the first part of a two volume project entitled Capitalism and Schizophrenia.
