The Society of the Spectacle (La Société du spectacle [published in Paris, 1967]) is a book by Guy Debord, which developed concepts relating to the "gaze" of modern culture and commodity fetishism. The book also contains sharp criticism of Leninism in all its variants and presents a direct democratic alternative. It continues to influence a variety of philosophical and political movements, notably anarchism and anti-capitalism. — Excerpted from The Society of the Spectacle on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
