I'm just beginning to read John Guillory's _Cultural Capital_, which
seems excellent.  His criticism of Laclau and Mouffe (and identity
politics more generally, especially as they have been articulated in the
university around the canon debate) are interesting, and pretty much on
target, as far as I can see so far.  Essentially, he likes the theory,
but thinks the practice (with Laclau and Mouffe the attempt to articulate
a politics) lies far behind.

More later, as I keep going.

Take care
