A postmodern classic (first published in French in 1981) in which Baudrillard posits an analysis of postmodern reality based on notions of cultural expenditure, the ‘simulacrum,’ and ‘simulation’ vis-à-vis electronic media culture.

See in particular ‘The Precession of Simulacra’ and ‘The Implosion of Meaning in the Media.’
