Taking on the Political is a series of monographs that offer new perspectives on contemporary political theory. Books in the series 'take on'the political in accordance with the ambivalent colloquial sense of the phrase - as both an acceptance and a challenge The series interrogates received accounts of the relation between political thought and political practice, criticizes and engages with the contemporary political imagination, and reflects on the ongoing transformations of politics. The texts are concise and polemical. They are oriented towards critique, developments in Continental thought, and the crossing of disciplinary borders.

Reviews

"For a multifaceted engagement with Rose's ideas which goes beyond the concept of impiety, however, Schick's Gillian Rose is the book to turn to. Rose's demanding oeuvre has suffered from an undue neglect which Schick's refined book will hopefully go some way to remedying. Gillian Rose provides a clear and persuasive argument for Rose's continuing relevance in relation to debates about trauma and how to respond to it."--Nicholas Chare, University of Melbourne, The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory"Schick's account is an engaging presentation of Rose's thought addressed to readers new to her work ... Gillian Rose: A Good Enough Justice provides evidence of the singular power of attraction of Rose's thought in its capacity to think through the dualisms conditioning social-political actuality and to afford resources for ethical action."--Radical Philosophy"What Schick achieves in 130 pages is impressive. She offers an exposition of Rose's thought, grounds it in its formative philosophical influences and sets it in conversation with problems in contemporary political philosophy. And she does this cogently, without significantly sacrificing breadth or depth ... Schick's work is a compelling invitation to read more Gillian Rose."--LSE Review of Books "Schick's account is an engaging presentation of Rose's thought addressed to readers new to her work ...

Schick's work is a compelling invitation to read more Gillian Rose."--LSE Review of Books In this book Kate Schick brings off the seemingly impossible: she renders Gillian Rose's thought clear without losing sight of its subtle profundity and obstinate difficulty. In doing so she makes it apparent just why we might now be more receptive to this thought and what it still has to teach us: that against the already actualised dystopic utopia of the right, and an increased left oscillation between impossible utopia and entire resignation to evil, Rose offers us the abstract contours of a hopeful realism or a realistic hope. Schick rightly edges that vision a little further away from aporia and a little further towards practical realisation. Thereby she has crafted a real contribution not just to scholarship and political theory, but to the future of political practice in the UK and beyond.--John Milbank, The University of Nottingham
