starts okay then fades
on 2 December 2008
The opening couple of chapters introduce the interesting idea of the 'spectacle'. Unfortunately this is never really explained and after chapter 4 we are left with nothing more than a discourse of marxism, anarchism (which is dismissed by Debord) and the struggle between the proles and the bourgeois...which did not interest me at all.
Unless you are a student of 19th century class struggle there is little of interest here.
