Summary

Baudrillard sees the power of the terrorists as lying in the symbolism of slaughter not merely the reality of death, but in a sacrifice that challenges the whole system. Where previously the old revolutionary sought to conduct a struggle between real forces in the context of ideology and politics, the new terrorist mounts a powerful symbolic challenge which, when combined with high-tech resources, constitutes an unprecedented assault on an over-sophisticated and vulnerable West. This new edition is up-dated with the essays 'Hypotheses on Terrorism' and 'Violence of the Global'.
