1 Review
The first biography in English of the modern French revolutionary. Since his death in 1994, Guy Debord has been hailed as one of the key thinkers of his age. Implicated in the events of May 1968, Italian terrorism and murder, he was under surveillance by the French secret police for over a decade. This is the story of the lone, defiant figure who, at one historic moment in 1968, appeared to lead the drift of art and politics in Paris.
