The Naked Communist

Cold War Modernism and the Politics of Popular Culture

Roland Végsxo

A Fordham University Press Publication

While the "world" names the totality that functioned as the ultimate horizon of modern political imagination, the three other figures define the necessary limits of this totality by reflecting on the limits of representation.
