Description

Brash twenty-something author Camille de Toledo recently burst onto Paris's intellectual scene with his brilliantly incisive manifesto, examining present-day counterculture from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the present. He asks what it is, exactly, his generation is protesting and contemplates how revolt against Western capitalistic values has been neutralized since the time of Francis Fukuyama's landmark 1989 article "The End of History."Providing historical context from the Surrealists to Jean-Luc Godard, Guy Debord to Johnny Rotten, Gilles Deleuze to Kurt Cobain, he reveals how the diffusion of political power as well as media co-option have robbed all forms of cultural dissent of their critical potential, leaving behind a new generation of rebels unsure of their cause.show more
