      1. Famed and controversial French theorist Baudrillard’s strange, small book documenting his road trip through America (which he calls ‘the only remaining primitive society’), the land of simulation and simulacra. Short snippets of writing are interspersed with Baudrillard’s own photographs of the journey. A snapshot-in-time portrait of the US through the eyes of a critical European just before the Cold War ended.
