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.
