This is the first dictionary dedicated to the work of Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007). It explains and contextualises more than a hundred key concepts, terms, influences and topics within his thought. An essential reference for students and scholars of Baudrillard, it also serves as an authoritative overview of how his ideas have shaped a broad range of disciplines, from art, architecture, film and photography to sociology, philosophy, human geography, media studies and cultural studies. The entries are written by 35 leading Baudrillard specialists from around the world, including Rex Butler, Mike Gane, Gary Genosko, Victoria Grace, Diane Rubenstein and Andrew Wernick.

It defines, details, and contextualizes key terms and influences within Baudrillard's thought, including hyperreality, symbolic exchange, reversibility, simulation, disappearance, seduction, fashion, metaphysics, cloning, the Gulf War, terrorism, and 9/11.
