Paul Virilio: theorist for an accelerated culture
The first authoritative study of the life and work of French urban and cultural theorist Paul Virilio, this book sets out to explain and analyse what Virilio has actually said over the years and exactly when he said it. Paul Virilio is an active political and cultural thinker and commentator with a major back catalogue of work stretching back to the 1950s and this book reviews the whole of his intellectual career. Virilio has contributed his 'logic bombs' to many other fields, such as media theory, international relations, art history, cultural politics, architecture and peace studies.
