About the book:

In this, his most important collection of essays since Le systeme des objets, Jean Baudrillard contemplates Western culture after the orgythe orgy, that is, of the revolutions of the 1960s. The sexual revolution has led, he argues, not to sexual liberation but to a reign of transvestism, to a confusion of the categories of man and womanto the androgenous and Frankenstein appeal of a Michael Jackson. The revolution in art has led to a transaesthetic realm of indifference. The cybernetic revolution has blurred the distinction between man and machine, while the political revolution has led to a transpolitics that merely simulates old political forms. Such are the points of Baudrillards compass as he steers his way through the mental landscape of this febrile fin de siecle.
