The Spirit of Terrorism

£6.00

Manufacturer: Verso Books

Product Information

Jean Baudrillard's response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

"Continuing an analysis developed over many years, Baudrillard sees the power of the terrorists as lying in the symbolism of this slaughter. Not merely the reality of death, but a sacrificial death which challenges the whole system. Where the past revolutionary sought to conduct a struggle of real forces in the context of ideology and politics, the new terrorist mounts a powerful symbolic challenge, which, when combined with high-tech resources, constitutes an unprecedented assault on an over-sophisticated, vulnerable West."

Slim booklet, Verso Books, 2002.
