Guy Debord

Guy Debord

This is the first intellectual biography of Guy Debord, prime mover of the Situationist International (1957-1972) and author of The Society of the Spectacle, the seminal book of the May 1968 uprising in France. Anselm Jappe offers a powerful corrective to the continual attempts to incorporate Debord's theoretical work into "French theory." Jappe focuses, to the contrary, on Debord's debt to the Hegelian-Marxist tradition, to Karl Korsch and Georg Luk√°cs, and more generally to left-Marxist currents of council communism. His close reading of Debord's magnum opus is unique among the great flood of writing on the Situationists in recent decades. This PM reprint edition benefits from a new author's preface and a bibliographical update.
