Book Description Verso Books, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. 3rd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. First published in 1967, Guy Debord s stinging revolutionary critique ofcontemporary society, "The Society of the Spectacle" has since acquired acult status. Credited by many as being the inspiration for the ideasgenerated by the events of May 1968 in France, Debord s pitiless attackon commodity fetishism and its incrustation in the practices of everydaylife continues to burn brightly in today s age of satellite televisionand the soundbite. In "Comments on the Society of the Spectacle, " publishedtwenty years later, Debord returned to the themes of his previousanalysis and demonstrated how they were all the more relevant in aperiod when the integrated spectacle was dominant. Resolutely refusingto be reconciled to the system, Debord trenchantly slices through thedoxa and mystification offered tip by journalists and pundits to showhow aspects of reality as diverse as terrorism and the environment, theMafia and the media, were caught up in the logic of the spectacularsociety. Pointing the finger clearly at those who benefit from the logicof domination, Debord s "Comments" convey the revolutionary impulse atthe heart of situationism.". Seller Inventory # AAJ9781844676729
