The Gulf War Did Not Take Place

The Gulf War Did Not Take Place

Jean Baudrillard Paul Patton
3.6/5 (593 ratings)
In a provocative analysis written during the unfolding drama of 1992, Baudrillard draws on his concepts of simulation and the hyperreal to argue that the Gulf War did not take place but was a carefully scripted media event--a "virtual" war.

Patton's introduction argues that Baudrillard, more than any other critic of the Gulf War, correctly identified the stakes involved in the gestation of the New World Order.
