Description - Baudrillard Live by Mike Gane
Baudrillard Live collects together many interviews which have been published in very different locations and publications into a coherent work. With new interviews and an introduction, it makes available the conversational thought of one of the leading French intellectuals associated with postmodernism. The scope of the interviews is enormous, from the experience of visiting the cinema and film and photography through to the Gulf War and the new world order. These interviews provide a peerless supplement to Baudrillard's often difficult sociological and theoretical writing and illuminate many points of contention in his work, particularly those relating to postmodernism. Baudrillard Live is a contribution of the highest importance to the critique of modern society, and it raises many disturbing issues and problems. The collection is edited by a leading authority on Baudrillard's work. It will appeal not only to those interested in French intellectual life but also to those interested in the debate on modernity and postmodernity. It is an essential document in the understanding of one of the most creative and important French thinkers alive today.
