There are few philosophers today cool enough to be referenced in the Matrix, interesting enough to be mentioned on Six Feet Under, and popular enough to get over 606,000 hits on Google. Jean Baudrillard has succeeded in all of this and more. Now, in his latest book, Baudrillard presents his most popular themes--symbolic exchange, hyper-reality, technology and war--and applies them to the current global conflict between "the West and the Rest", including Islam. Ultimately, it is not simply about the war against terror but about the bigger picture of capitalism versus everything else. This book serves as the summation of Baudrillard's work over the last twenty years and is the essential analysis of the fundamental conflict of our time.

About the Author:

Jean Baudrillard is one of the most influential philosophical and cultural critics writing today. His books include Simulacra and Simulation, The Gulf War Did Not Take Place, America, Seduction, The System of Objects, Cool Memories, Symbolic Exchange and Death and The Transparency of Evil.

Chris Turner has translated many of the key works of French theory over the last two decades, particularly the work of Baudrillard, including most recently, The Spirit of Terrorism.

Review:

Praise for Jean Baudrillard:
"When it comes to mysterious paradoxes and lyrical complexity no French intellectual matches Jean Baudrillard in contemplating the New World ... a sharp-shooting Lone Ranger of the post-Marxist left."--New York Times
"The most important French thinker of the past twenty years."--J.G. Ballard

"An international, intellectual superstar."--Salon.com

"The most notorious intellectual celebrity to emerge from Paris since Roland Barthes and the most influential prophet of the media since Marshal McLuhan."--i-D magazine

"The most important French thinker of the past twenty years."--J.G. Ballard
"Baudrillard foresaw the allure of virtual reality long before William Gibson; he was in the vanguard of Marxian critiques of modern consumerism; before it became fashionable, he wrote a scintillating analysis of man's sentimental exploitation of animals. Baudrillard got there first, many times. And now his self-imposed task is to shock us into realising that thought and the world need not be as they are."--The Guardian
