Over the last two decades, Jean Baudrillard has become one of Europe's most fashionable and controversial writers with his contributions to the analysis of modern society and culture. This new book is the first full-length study of Baudrillard's work in English. Kellner analyses the development of Baudrillard's ideas and assesses their contribution to contemporary debates. He discusses Baudrillard's precursors and contemporaries - Freud, McLuhan, Foucault - and examines his more original preoccupations with "simulacra", terrorism and pornography. Kellner provides an analysis which aims to stimulate debate in its own right and provide an introduction to Baudrillard for students of the social sciences, literary theory and cultural and media studies.
