About this title:

Synopsis:

In this book Jean Baudrillard, one of the most celebrated and controversial contemporary social theorists, argues that the notion of the end of history is an illusion, and that we are now engaged in a gigantic process of historical revisionism.

From the Back Cover: ?Vintage Baudrillard?compelling, diabolically clever, outrageous, wounded, ironic, refreshing, and certainly controversial. It is a most original meditation on the theme of history, on its shape or trajectory, and the human fate bound up with it.??Mark Poster, University of California, Irvine
?There are three reasons for celebrating this translation. First, for the first time we are up to date with Baudrillard?s ideas. Second, with the exception of Chapter 1, the material is new. . . . Third, the publishers have not added or omitted anything to the text in its translation. . . . Baudrillard weaves his argument as brilliantly as one has come to expect.??Environment and Planning
