More About the Author

I was born in Rugby, Warwickshire. I am a Geographer who has visited almost half of the world's countries. I was educated at the Universities of Hull (BA Hons Geography, first class, 1992) and Bristol (PhD, Geography, 1995), and work at Swansea University in Wales. At weekends you will find me mountain biking in Wales's mountains and forests.

I have a website at: http://www.swansea.ac.uk/staff/science/geography/r.g.smith/

I have been fascinated by Baudrillard's philosophy for more than a quarter of a century. I am the author of numerous articles on Baudrillard's oeuvre, and I am the editor of The Baudrillard Dictionary (Edinburgh University Press, 2010), Jean Baudrillard: Fatal Theories (Routledge, 2009), 'Baudrillard Redux' (Special Issue of Cultural Politics, 2011), and am an editorial board member of the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies. I am currently completing two more books: Jean Baudrillard: Selected Contemporary Writings (Sage), and Jean Baudrillard: from Hyperreality to Disappearance: Uncollected Interviews (EUP). I organized the first major UK conference on Baudrillard's work in 2006 (4-6 September), and was interviewed in 2014 about Baudrillard for a South Korean TV documentary.

In Urban Studies, my research on poststructuralist cities has initiated a 'post-topographical turn' in urban studies. I have been invited to speak about cities around the world, most recently to Kazan in Russia, and to Bogota and Medellin in Colombia. My research papers are among the most highly-cited in the world. Current research is focused on urban dominance and the unravelling of control in the global economy; the editing of a major book - The Companion to Urban Studies (Routledge); the completion of a research monograph on Poststructuralist Cities; and, Santander funded research on social and technological issues in Rio de Janeiro.

Product Description


The Baudrillard Dictionary challenges for the first time every received idea we may have had about Baudrillard, establishing him as one of the most substantial and visionary philosophers of our era... A revelation. --Sylvere Lotringer, Professor Emeritus, Columbia University and founder of Semiotext(e)

This is a very useful book, and gives insight into most of Baudrillard's concepts. Anyone who is working seriously on Baudrillard should have it on the shelves.
