Reviews

“I believe that this book is central reading for all South Africans that are trying to navigate an ethical path through social formations that are at times both enthralling and appalling to our sensitivities. Hook offers a set of lenses and a sophisticated understanding of psychoanalytic concepts to navigate our way – leading to an altogether unsettling viewpoint that nevertheless holds the promise of working through rather than repetition.” (Lisa Saville Young, PINS Psychology in Society, Vol. 51, 2016)

'(Post)apartheid Conditions remains an important intervention for anybody seriously interested in bringing psychoanalysis to bear not only on South Africa but on the deeper dynamics of social conflict, wherever it is found.' - Radical Philosophy
