'Herman Rapaport is a strongly inventive, active reader of Derrida's writings, both the more recent and those one may have thought were assimilated years ago (but think again!). Bringing to its task sharp critical tools, Later Derrida proposes insightful interpretations of Derrida's latest work in the domain of politics and ethics. In the process, it challenges some of the most entrenched ideas about deconstruction.' - Peggy Kamuf

'The book's principal success has been to hold open the space for the arrival of an unprecendented event on the "hither side of deconstruction," to stray from the point, to err in repeating that which came before and to continue to question "what could take place tomorrow."'- Partial Answers, Journal of Literature and The History of Ideas

'An important aim of the collection … is to "stress Derrida's relevance in terms of cultural studies" … He succeeds in doing this in the most rigorous and original way.' - Critical and Cultural Theory
