Walter Benjamin was one of the most original Marxist cultural theorists of the twentieth-century. Here, the authors argue that his thought was shaped by his attempt to connect extremes - to make the theological idea of salvation fruitful for political thought. And, then they structure his themes in light of the consequences of this intention.

"This small book is a remarkably complete presentation of a philosophy that is very hard to present in a systematic way. . . It is doubtless one of the best introductions to the very subtle and 'dialectical' philosophy of Walter Benjamin."
