L'Amérique sidérale. Le caractère lyrique de la circulation pure. Contre la mélancolie des analyses européennes. La sidération immédiate du vectoriel, du signalétique, du vertical, du spatial. Contre la distance fébrile du regard culturel. L'allégresse de l'obscénité, l'obscénité de l'évidence, l'évidence de la puissance, la puissance de la simulation. Contre notre virginité déçue, nos abîmes d'affectation. La sidération. Celle, horizontale, de la voiture ; celle, altitudinale, de l'avion ; celle, électronique, de la télévision ; celle, géologique, des déserts ; celle, stéréolytique, des mégalopoles ; celle, transpolitique, du jeu de la puissance, du musée de la puissance qu'est devenue l'Amérique pour le monde entier.

"This is easily Baudrillard's most important work. It is a key intervention in the debates on modernity and postmodernity and the site of his postmodern turn. Anyone who wants to understand the complexity and provocativeness of Baudrillard's richest period must read this text."
- Douglas Kellner

"Perhaps Baudrillard's most widely admired text, or at least, as he himself once wryly observed, "the last book that inspired any confidence".... For anyone seeking a way into Baudrillard's highly inventive, uncompromising, and occasionally maddening oeuvre, Symbolic Exchange and Death is still one of the best places from which to start."
- Radical Philosophy

Jean Baudrillard is one of the most celebrated and most controversial of contemporary social theorists. This major work occupies a central place in the rethinking of the humanities and social sciences around the idea of postmodernism.

It leads the reader on an exhilarating tour encompassing the end of Marxism, the enchantment of fashion, symbolism about sex and the body, and the relations between economic exchange and death. Most significantly, the book represents Baudrillard's fullest elaboration of the concept of the three orders of the simulacra, defining the historical passage from production to reproduction to simulation.

A classic in its field, Symbolic Exchange and Death is a key source for the redefinition of contemporary social thought. Baudrillard's critical gaze appraises social theories as diverse as cybernetics, ethnography, psychoanalysis, feminism, Marxism, communications theory and semiotics.
