Review Essays and Book Reviews

Each issue IJBS will publish review essays and reviews of books by and about Baudrillard and books on topics relevant to Baudrillard Studies.  For Volume 1-1 we offer previously published reviews of Baudrillard’s Perfect Crime, Paroxysm and the first Cool Memories as well as a triple review of the Verso series released one year after September 11, 2001: Baudrillard’s The Spirit of Terrorism and Requiem For The Twin Towers; Paul Virilio’s Ground Zero; and Slavoj Zizek’s Welcome To The Desert of the Real.  Our book reviews section will publish reviews of both recently published and older books of interest to our readers.  More than one review of a title may appear if sufficiently different from those previously published in IJBS.

If you would like to write a review of our listed books for Volume 1-2 (deadline May 1, 2004) or would like to suggest another book for review, please contact Gerry Coulter at: gcoulter@ubishops.ca  Please type “Baudrillard Studies Reviews” in the subject line.  A list of books available for review at present follows at the end of the reviews.
