The book ascribes the late state of paralysis affecting dissent in America to the adoption of a peculiar gospel of divisiveness, which was promoted in the Eighties by importing from France the "theories" of philosopher Michel Foucault.

MEDIA REVIEWS

' The Ideology of Tyranny exposes a bankrupt mode of thought, clearing the way for a re-invigorated philosophy and social science of unembarrassed fealty to centrality and truth. What's more, it is an entertaining read, thoroughly unpretentious, jargon-free, and marked by scintillating argument. Preparata makes a compelling, unique and truly remarkable contribution to our understanding of postmodernism, and especially Foucault.' - David MacGregor, Professor of Sociology at King's University College, University of Western Ontario, Canada, and author of The Communist Ideal in Hegel and Marx
