Simulation in Media and Culture: Believing the Hype, edited by Robin DeRosa, is an updating of Baudrillard's theory of the simulacra for our current cultural moment. This collection examines the condition of hyperreality in four arenas of contemporary life: television, film, gaming, and the politics of place. By revisioning classic examples of the simulacra, such as reality television and online worlds, Simulation in Media and Culture aims to rethink simulation as it manifests in new and different ways.
