Desert Screen Summary

Desert Screen: War at the Speed of Light by Paul Virilio

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.

Desert Screen Reviews

'one of the most original thinkers of our time'. Liberation; 'Virilio writes on the edge of physics, philosophy, politics and urbanism'. New Statesman
