About this title

Synopsis:

Desert Screen is a vision of future war. Paul Virilio identifies the Gulf War as a turning point in history, the last industrial and the first information war. Virilio argues that we live in a world still exhausted from the geopolitics of the Cold War, a world in which the politics of military and media technology seem to preclude the possibility of negotiation and diplomacy. This new translation of an already classic text includes a new interview with Virilio in which he looks back at a decade of war at the speed of light.

About the Author:

Paul Virilio is one of our foremost cultural critics. Architect, urban planner and former director of the École Speciale d'Architecture in Paris, he has written widely on film, architecture, war and technology.
