Reviews of the First Edition

This is a good book, and the author of its selected writings, Jean Baudrillard, deserves only a share of the compliment. It is difficult to introduce a difficult author, and Mark Poster has done a brilliant job. He has selected wisely from Baudrillard's writings. . . .

Poster has somehow said everything the uninitiated needs to know before deciding to read Baudrillard. Contemporary Sociology
