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 way of apprehending speed and its pivotal - and potentially destructive - role in contemporary global society. This new translation by Michael Degener makes available in English for the first time, one of Virilio's seminal works - set to be required reading for anyone interested in the rise of new technologies and the direction of global politics.
