Product Details

Praise

“Occasionally provocative and almost always infuriating … America is filled with perceptive, almost poetic observations.”—Rolling Stone

“Since de Tocqueville, French thinkers have been fascinated with America. But when it comes to mysterious paradoxes and lyrical complexity no French intellectual matches Jean Baudrillard in contemplating the New World.”—The New York Times

“A mixture of crazy notions and dead-on insights, America is a valuable (and voluble) picture of what Mr. Baudrillard calls ‘the only remaining primitive society’ … ours.”—The New York Times Book Review
