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. Richard J. Lane offers a comprehensive introduction to this complex and fascinating theorist, also examining the impact that Baudrillard has had on literary studies, media and cultural studies, sociology, philosophy and postmodernism.
