For a long time, the term ‘ideology’ was in disrepute, having become associated with such unfashionable notions as fundamental truth and the eternal verities. The tide has turned, and recent years have seen a revival of interest in the questions that ideology poses to social and cultural theory, and to political practice. Mapping Ideology is a comprehensive reader covering the most important contemporary writing on the subject. Including Slavoj Žižek’s study of the development of the concept from Marx to the present, assessments of the contributions of Lukács and the Frankfurt School by Terry Eagleton, Peter Dews and Seyla Benhabib, and essays by Adorno, Lacan and Althusser, Mapping Ideology is an invaluable guide to the most dynamic field in cultural theory.

Tyler Is Not Here
The selections are very good choices. I have ecommended this book to students discussing the nature of ideology. Zizek is trendy now, so his introduction will be of interest. Several New Left Review pieces, such as the translations of Adorno, Althusser and Lacan, as well as articles by Dews, Therborn, Bourdieu and Eagleton's piece, as well as that by Abercrombie, Hill, and Turnerare included. Also several selections from Verso books, such as selections from Eagleton and Zizek himself.
One limitation of this anthology, partly because of the concentration on NLR sources and Verso books, and partly because of the theoretical orientation of the editor and publishers, as a survey of ideology is the lack of pieces by such writers and Marx and Engels, Lukacs, Mannheim and Lenin, which set the parameters for traditional notions of ideology. James Curtis' and John Petras' larger, older (1970) anthology on the Sociology of Knowledge includes these as well as less well known and non-Marxist German writers on the subject, such as Max Scheler and Wilhelm Jerusalem. This anthology is much more up to date, but the lack of the classical early 20th C sources make it less of an introduction to the subject than it could be.

This book represents a tradition that could be beneficial in the mainstream discourse. Althusser and Zizek and the rest are the great investigators of the forces, elements, structures, discourses, arguments, preconceptions, concepts, apparatuses, and hidden shifts and slights of hand of the conscious/unconscious mind. Time to understand ideology in its most complex manifestations. Time to understand ourselves.
