"One of the most original thinkers of our time." - Liberation "Virilio writes on the edge of physics, philosophy, politics and urbanism" - New Statesman 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 of global spatio-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.
