Book Description

5 July 2010
This is the first dictionary dedicated to the work of Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007). It explains and contextualises more than a hundred key concepts, terms, influences and topics within his thought. An essential reference for students and scholars of Baudrillard, it also serves as an authoritative overview of how his ideas have shaped a broad range of disciplines, from art, architecture, film and photography to sociology, philosophy, human geography, media studies and cultural studies. The entries are written by thirty-five leading Baudrillard specialists from around the world, including Rex Butler, Mike Gane, Gary Genosko, Victoria Grace, Diane Rubenstein and Andrew Wernick.

More About the Author

I was born in Rugby, Warwickshire, to English parents. 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 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, 1986-2007 (EUP).

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. 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), and the completion of my writing of a research monograph on Poststructuralist Cities.

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)
