summary
This volume explores the intersection between theories of the modern spectaclefrom Jose Antonio Maravall's conceptualization of the spectacular culture of the baroque to the Frankfurt School's theorization of mass culture, to Baudrillard's notion of the simulacrum, to Guy Debord's understanding of the society of the spectacleand the findings of the emerging fields of urban studies, landscape studies, and, generally speaking, studies of space.
