This is a unique collection presenting work by Alain Badiou and commentaries on his philosophical theories. It includes three lectures by Badiou, on contemporary politics, the infinite, cinema and theatre and two extensive interviews with Badiou - one concerning the state of the contemporary situation and one wide ranging interview on all facets of his work and engagements. It also includes six interventions on aspects of Badiou's work by established scholars in the field, addressing his concept of history, Lacan, Cinema, poetry, and feminism; and four original essays by young and established scholars in Australia and New Zealand addressing the key concerns of Badiou's 2015 visit to the Antipodal region and the work he presented there. With new material by Badiou previously unpublished in English this volume is a valuable overview of his recent thinking. Critical responses by distinguished and gifted Badiou scholars writing outside of the European context make this text essential reading for anyone interested in the development and contemporary reception of Badiou's thought.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Suitable for both newcomers to Badiou and seasoned scholars, this collection is a valuable addition to the literature on this living philosopher. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. * CHOICE *
Badiou and His Interlocutors is an excellent, original collection that promises to nudge Badiou out of the European and North American contexts that have dominated his reception and into dialogue with a novel set of social and political concerns in Australia and New Zealand. * Adam Miller, Professor of Philosophy, Collin College, USA *
This book contains both fascinating new writing by, and interviews with, Badiou himself, together with essays that engage with Badiou by leading scholars in the field. That the book is presented and edited by real Badiou specialists makes it particularly exciting. -- Nick Hewlett, Professor of French Studies, University of Warwick, UK
Featuring new material by Badiou alongside critical commentaries on relatively neglected aspects of his thought-specifically history, sex, and gender- this volume highlights the multi-facetedness of Badiou's work. It will be essential reading for specialists but also an accessible entry point for non-specialists. -- Ray Brassier, Professor of Philosophy, American University of Beirut, Lebanon
