    Book details


Desert Screen is a vision of future war, in which 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 of global sptio-temporal collapse, 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. Virilio's original and far-reaching analysis is vital for an understanding of the current Middle East crisis. Paul Virilio (1932-) is Director of the Ecole Speciale d'Architecture in Paris and author of over 15 books including Art and Fear, Negative Horizon, War and Cinema and Open Sky.
