Jean Baudrillard is one of the most controversial theorists of our time, famous for his claim that the Gulf War never happened and for his provocative writing on terrorism, specifically 9/11. This new and fully updated second edition includes:




  • an introduction to Baudrillard's key works and theories such as simulation and hyperreality

  • coverage of Baudrillard's later work on the question of postmodernism

  • a new chapter on Baudrillard and terrorism

  • engagement with architecture and urbanism through the Utopie group

  • a look at the most recent applications of Baudrillard's ideas.
