Introducing Baudrillard

A Graphic Guide

Introducing Baudrillard
Add to cart
US$ 10.19
Jean Baudrillard has been hailed as one of France’s most subtle and powerful theorists. But his provocative style and assaults on sociology, feminism and Marxism have exposed him to accusations of promoting a dangerous new orthodoxy - of being the ‘pimp’ of postmodernism.  Introducing Baudrillard cuts beneath the controversy of this misunderstood intellectual to present his radical claims that reality has been replaced by a simulated world of images and events ranging from TV news to Disneyland. It provides a clear account of Baudrillard’s work on obesity, pornography and terrorism and traces his development from critic of mass consumption to prophet of the apocalypse.
