Reality Shock. From the Representation of Consumption to the Representation of War

The relevance of the topic is due to the complex processes of the dialectic of war and communications, the study of which allows one to reveal the "sleeping" archetypes of the mass unconscious in peacetime, to discover in them the germs of a future war. Based on extensive historical material, as well as in the context of the theoretical works of Western and Russian thinkers, the author shows the socio-cultural context of the traumatic reality of the 20th century, in which technology has brought the "face of war" to every home.

Lubov Choi

The young but already recognized Russian researcher Pavel Rodkin has written a topical book. He took up an almost overwhelming topic! The representation of war in the context of slowed down globalization and integrated communications is a topic as fundamental as it is mosaic; it manifests itself from different sides, depending on the author's point of view.
