"As we have come to expect from Christina Howells' exemplary earlier work on Sartre, this book on Derrida is comprehensively researched, clearly written and strongly argued. It is a valuable and much-needed addition to the literature that will be essential reading for anybody interested in Derrida." Simon Critchley, University of Essex
"interesting – her claims around the idea that deconstructive readings subject philosophical texts "to the same kind of analysis as literary ones" are particularly thought-provoking" Simon Glendinning, Times Literary Supplement
* A clear and lucid assessment of Derrida's writings which offers accessible explanations of his more difficult theories and terms (eg grammatology, deconstruction, differance, trace, etc).
* Unlike other introductions, the book includes coverage of Derrida's contribution to contemporary debates and issues such as psychoanalysis, ethics and politics.
