'Jean-Michel Rabate is one of our most original, wide-ranging and informed of Joyce critics, and his new study lives up to the very high standards of his earlier work. The range of topics in James Joyce and the Politics of Egoism is typical of Rabate's searching intellect which is constantly finding nuggets of relevant information.' Derek Attridge, University of York 'James Joyce and the Politics of Egoism, a work of extra ordinary breadth and perceptiveness, makes for fascinating reading. Rabate's sophistication, his intellectual range, and his generous tolerance for different critical and theoretical approaches combine to produce a major contribution to the study of Joyce (and of modernism).
