Publisher's Summary

This is the "Das Kapital" of the 20th century - an essential text, and the main theoretical work of the Situationists. Few works of political and cultural theory have been as enduringly provocative. From its publication amid the social upheavals of the 1960s up to the present, the volatile theses of this book have decisively transformed debates on the shape of modernity, capitalism, and everyday life in the 21st century. This is the original translation by Fredy Perlman, kept in print continuously for the last 50 years, keeping the flame of personal and collective autonomy alive.

Society of the Spectacle

This book was very deep. It requires a good amount of prior knowledge of communism and thinkers such as Marx. Overall, it was a fantastic book, even though some of it was over my head. Very interesting and insightful.

optional?

Interesting subject matter poorly narrated. A real struggle to finish but intrigue pushed me forward.
