Suspending the distinction between headline news and high theory, Avital Ronell examines the diverse figures of finitude in our modernity: war, guerrilla video, trauma TV, AIDS, music, divorce, sadism, electronic tagging, rumor. Her essays address such questions as, How do rumors kill? How has video become the conscience of TV? How have the police come to be everywhere, even where they are not? Is peace possible? “[W]riting to the community of those who have no community—to those who have known the infiniteness of abandonment,” her work explores the possibility, one possibility among many, that “this time we have gone too far”: “One last word. It is possible that we have gone too far. This possibility has to be considered if we, as a species, as a history, are going to get anywhere at all.”

From the Back Cover:

Suspending the distinction between headline news and high theory, Avital Ronell examines diverse figures of finitude in our modern world: war, guerrilla video, trauma TV, AIDS, music, divorce, sadism, electronic tagging, rumor. Her essays, some previously published and others appearing in print for the first time, address such questions as, How do rumors kill? How has video become the call of conscience of TV? What kind of pathology did the Persian Gulf War reflect? Is peace possible? How have the police come to be everywhere, even where they are not?
