French philosopher Jean Baudrillard’s most provocative book, Seduction. Originally published in 1979, he describes seduction as ‘a black magic for the deviation of all truths’. Throughout chapters with titles such as ‘The Effigy of the Seductress’ and ‘Trompe l’oeil or Enchanted Simulation’, Baudrillard interrogates modern critical theory, feminism, psychoanalysis and the politics of human sexuality. This first English edition features Man Ray’s 1929 Woman With Long Hair on the cover.
