Summary
In (Per)Versions of Love and Hate, Renata Salecl explores the disturbing and complex relationships between love and hate, violence and admiration, libidinal and destructive drives, through investigation of phenomena as diverse as the novels The Age of Innocence and The Remains of the Day, classic Hollywood melodramas, the Sirens' song, Ceausescu's Romania, and the Russian performance artist Oleg Kulik, who acts like a dog and bites his audience. For Salecl - who questions the legitimacy of the calls for 'tolerance and respect' by multiculturalists - practices such as body multilation are symptoms of the radical change that has affected subjectivity in contemporary society
