The first English translation of Baudrillard's extraordinary collection of essays written during and after the hostilities in the Middle East. This is a penetrating and provocative analysis of the unfolding drama using the author's concepts of simulation and the hyperreal. Paul Patton's introduction surveying the debate aroused by the conflict argues that Baudrillard, more than any other critic of the events, correctly identified the political stakes involved in the gestation of the New World Order.
