From the synchroized camera/machine-buns on the biplanes of World War I to the laser satellites of "star wars", the technologies of cinema and warfare have developed a fatal interdependence. Hiroshima marked one conclusion of this process in the nuclear "flash", which penetrated the city's darkest recesses, etching the images of its victims on the walls. Since the disappearance of direct vision in battle and the replacement of one-to-one combat by the remote and murderous son et lumiere of trench warfare, military strategy has been dominated by the struggle between visibility and invisibility, surveillance and camouflage. Perception and destruction have now become co-terminous. Paul Virilio, a radical French critic of contemporary culture, explores these conjunctions from a range of perspectives. He gives a detailed technical history of weaponry, photography and cinematography, illuminating it with accounts of films and military campaigns. He examines in parallel the ideas of strategists and directors, along with the views on war and cinema of writers from Apolinaire to William Burroughs. And he finds further fruitful sources of reflection in the history of cinema architecture of the wartime popularity of striptease and the pin-up.

Negative Horizon is Paul Virilio's most original and unified exploration of the key themes and ideas running through his work and thought. Provocatively and forcefully written, it sets out Virilio's theory of dromoscopy: a means of apprehending speed and its pivotal - and potentially destructive - role in contemporary global society.Applying this theory to Western political and military history, Virilio exposes a compulsion to accelerate, and the rise of a politics of time - encapsulated in the importance acorded to speed - over territorial politics of space. Moving through human history from the cave paintings at Lascaux that depict the first hunters, through the domestication of animals and the building of the first roads, to the 'stealth technologies' deployed in contemporary warfare, Virilio shows how resistance to speed and movement has consistently been eroded, and the physical world adapted, in order to satisfy the urge to move further and faster.

“One day the day will come when the day will not come.” Bleak in its analysis of the social destruction wrought by modern technologies of communication and surveillance, but passionately political, Open Sky is Paul Virilio’s most far-reaching and radical book for many years. Deepening and extending his earlier work on speed perception and political control, and applying it now to the global ‘real time’ of the information superhighways, he explores the growing danger of what he calls a “generalized accident,” provoked by the breakdown of our collective and individual relation to time, space and movement.But this is not merely a lucid and disturbing lament for the loss of real geographical spaces, distance, intimacy or democracy. Open Sky is also a call for revolt—against the insidious and accelerating manipulation of perception by the electronic media and repressive political power, against the tyranny of “real time,” and against the infantilism of cyberhype. Paul Virillo makes a powerful case for a new ethics of perception, and a new ecology, one which will not only strive to protect the natural world from pollution and destruction, but will also combat the devastation of urban communities by proliferating technologies of control and virtuality.

The future once promised the certainty of a better life for all butnow it is full of uncertainty, danger and fear. Our lives aresurrounded by the threats, imaginary or real, posed by terroristoutrages, natural catastrophes and disasters of all kinds. Thefuture is overshadowed by the nightmare of an outmoded humanityoverwhelmed by a catastrophe of its own making, a kind ofcatastrophic grand finale that would mirror the original accident -the Big Bang - that some scientists believe created the universe.A biting meditation on Progress technoscientific progress, at anycost and without any limits this book defines the ways in whichpostindustrial science has merged with out-and-out hyperterrorismto threaten the foundations of Greco-Roman, Judeo-Christiancivilization, and the future of the planet with them, throughinnovation of mass catastrophes that are part and parcel of itspanoply of inventions. Urging us to face up to the consequences of our brave-new-worldtechnologies, Virilio calls for the creation of a Museum of theAccident to fight our habituation to horror and violence, and ourdaily overexposure to terror, in the name, not of some preventivewar, but of a preventive intelligence that would help us deal withboth natural and artificial disasters.

“Civilization or the militarization of science?” With this typically hyperbolic and provocative question as a starting point, Paul Virilio explores the dominion of techno-science, cyberwar and the new information technologies over our lives ... and deaths. After the era of the atomic bomb, Virilio posits an era of genetic and information bombs which replace the apocalyptic bang of nuclear death with the whimper of a subliminally reinforced eugenics. We are entering the age of euthanasia. These exhilarating bulletins from the information war extend the range of Virilio’s work. The Information Bomb spans everything from Fukuyama to Larry Flynt, the Sensation exhibition of New British Art to space travel, all seen through the optic of Virilio’s trenchant and committed theoretical position.
