  1. Olga Pistina

    There not lot s of books written on love, sex and emotions in the political psychology and this one is definitely about it The author describes the unspoken topics that are directly involved in the revolution presses in Iraq, Russia and Vietnam Worth reading if you what to have a non stream perspective on the politics.

    3.5Interesting book, I liked the many examples On the other side it seemed at times to be a bit shallow I also would have expected a young philosopher to pick up something from the women s movement.See also this interview from July 2015 or a TED Talk March 2016, some 12 minutes , where he repeats some of the same concepts.

    El amor como elemento revolucionario Qu raz n ten a el Che.Salvando las distancias necesita una perspectiva de g nero en la obra y que a m no me parece que use el vocabulario adecuado para hablar de grandes l deres revolucionarios es una buena reflexi n sobre el amor como algo necesario de forma libre.

    Punching at various targets, seeking to elucidate not a theory of love but the necessity of it, the book drops open the falling in falling in love in favor of simply love Variously entertaining, informative, and intriguing, the book is a quick read that will leave you wanting to know , and wanting to think further on the topic.

  10. Jan Vranken

    Difficult to review, but certainly worth while the read because of its original insights in the connections between two topics that are almost never discussed Interesting illustrations from the lives of famous revolutionaries Question why the unhappy ending
