Georges Bataille by Paul Hegarty
Book DescriptionLong recognized in France as a central figure in French cultural thought, the range and significance of Batille's ideas are now being grasped in the English speaking world. His influence on Derrida, Foucault, Kristeva and Baudrillard is now more clearly understood and Bataille has emerged as a front-rank cultural theorist who posed questions and paradoxes that were extraordinarily prescient. This book offers a comprehensive and detailed presentation and analysis of the full range of his writings - political, philosophical, aesthetic, literary, anthropological and cultural. And tackles his thoughts on waste, sacrifice, death, eroticism, surplus, ecstasy and drunkenness, offering the best available guide to this challenging and utterly unique thinker.

Reverberations, Paperback (August 2012)
A groundbreaking collection that studies noise not merely as a sonic phenomenon but as an essential component of all communication and information systems.
Beyond and Before, Paperback (July 2011)
A survey of progressive rock, from its roots through to more contemporary artists who share similar traits including Sonic Youth and Radiohead. It assesses the roots of progressive rock, arguing that a fusion of styles, approaches and genres defined the 1970s period, and develops tools to assess other, later progressive musics.
