I have been an avid fan of Baudrillard since I started teaching in the late 1980s. I loved the way he dissects contemporary culture and this my favorite book. The essays beautifully and seamlessly probe deep in the bowels of post-sixties orgies, high and low art, deep culture to pop culture, and the socio-centric politics of Europe and the demise of Communism. He was our 20th-century Nietzsche. Who is the 21st?
