Philosophy and Social Criticism

“ . . . Cristi’s interpretation . . . represents the best discussion of Schmitt’s political theory in the English-speaking world to date . . . Contrary to the prevalent tendency to impute a substantive and unbroken continuity in Schmitt’s work, always anti-liberal, reactionary and anti-democrat, Cristi brilliantly illuminates its development, changes and shifting allegiances revealing its consistent animating tensions.” –Philosophy and Social Criticism
