Panegyric by Guy Debord( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Guy Debord, as founding member and pivotal figure of the Situationist International, pursued one of the twentieth century's most arch and exciting assaults on modern life. His 1967 Society of the Spectacle (followed, twenty years later, by Comments on the Society of the Spectacle) was a fierce critique of late-capitalist culture and became the signal text for those involved in the political events of May 1968 and beyond." "Panegyric is Debord's autobiography, and here for the first time in English is the second, illustrated volume published together with the spare and classical text of the first. A rare combination of poetry and precision, it tells of something even rarer: a life that refused to adjust to the dominant malignancies of its time."--Jacket
