Words of praise for 'What Does Europe Want? The Union and its Discontents':

 "The Slovenian madman and a charismatic Croatian philosopher, joined by the most dangerous Greek Politian, offer an analysis of the European deadlock in a way that is bitingly charming and bitterly intelligent. Any real European, faithful to the real idea of Europe, must read this’’

Oliver Stone, American film director, screenwriter, producer

"A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of resistance to the European elites’ sinister denial that there is something rotten in our continent’s foundations. Žižek and Horvat, aided and abetted by no other than the leader of Greece’s Radical Left party, animate this spectre. The pages of this book resonate with their powerful demolition of the European Union’s Orwellian propaganda. Readers who care about Europe have a duty to share in their energy, irrespectively of whether they agree with them or not."

Yanis Varoufakis, Plotical Economist and author of 'The Global Minotaur' & 'Game Theory: A critical text'
