Jean Baudrillard is the latest target in the vast and successful collection of 'Introducing' books: a fantastic collection of books that break up the sometimes tedious explanations of philosophical, political and cultural theory with illustrations, humour and biographical information. Baudrillard has produced many highly original theories in his lifetime, including the denounciation of Feminism, Marxism and refusing to believe the Gulf war ever happened!! This is the beauty of Baudrillard, his theories are so absurd yet still his arguements are so believable. Chris Horrocks has taken a complex theorist and cut his rhetoric down to what is essential to understanding the wierd and wonderful world of Jean Baudrillard.
