This is the first book to examine the politics of the event, from Marxism to contemporary French theory. 'Event' is one of the newest terms to establish a place in the vocabulary of political theory, promising a new way to think about historical change. Yet the idea's contemporary prominence has been accompanied by confusion regarding its historical antecedents and the political commitments entailed by thinking change as a result of unpredictable becomings. Politics of the Event is the first study to clarify both the continuities and discontinuities between ideas of the event in classical Marxism and those of contemporary French theory. The book's chapters on Hegel, Marx, Lenin, Althusser, Badiou and Meillassoux unlock the dilemmas that have animated and frustrated theorists across these traditions, and gets to the political stakes of their different conceptions of radical historical transformation. It clarifies the relationship between ideas of the event in contemporary French theory with the idea of revolutionary 'leaps' in classical Marxism. It establishes Louis Althusser's pivotal historical importance for separating the traditions. It argues that ideas of the event originate in maximising the novelty produced by revolutionary breaks in order to ward off the ability of theoreticians to peer into future and control the process of political change.
