This work traces the work of Jean Baudrillard, the postmodernist intellectual who has been hailed one of France's most powerful theorists.

His style and assaults on sociology, feminism and Marxism have exposed him to accusations of promoting a dangerous new orthodoxy.

The book presents his claims that reality has been replaced by a simulated world of images and events ranging from TV news to Disneyland.

It provides accounts of his work on pornography, obesity and terrorism, and traces his development from critic of mass consumption to prophet of the apocalypse.

It invites thoughts and discussion on whether Baudrillard is a cure for the vertigo of contemporary culture, or one of its symptoms.
