Description

'By interweaving discussion of Debray's writings on politics, media, and revolution, as well as his novels and autobiographical works, Reader reveals the wide-ranging yet underestimated relevance of his work to students of politics, history, sociology, media studies, literature, autobiography, and French society.' Modern & Contemporary France

This is the first critical introduction of French intellectual Regis Debray. Keith Reader provides a close analysis of Debray's political and cultural writings in their intellectual and historical context. The author draws out the underlying coherence of ideology and theme exemplified by Debray's consistent and continuing stress on the importance of geography, the centrality/ inevitability of the nation-state and the promotion of a culture of the word over one of the image.

About Keith Reader

Rudolf Rocker (1873-1958) was a leading figure in the international anarchist movement. Politically active in Britain, Germany and the United States for more than half a century, Rocker helped found several influential anarchist groups. His prolific lectures and writings made him one of the best-known proponents of liberty and freedom. Anarcho-Syndicalism, the most accessible of his works, was first published in 1938 and is now regarded as a classic survey of anarchism at a critical point in world politics.
