Some brief overview of book

The Information Bomb continues Virilios exploration of the relationship between technology, speed, war and the new information sciences. Citing sources as diverse as Pascal, Pope John Paul, Bill Clinton and Kafka, the author weaves together a worldview of horror, exhilaration and hope. All aspects of the information war are seen through the optic of Virilios trenchant theoretical position.

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 Virilios 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 Virilios trenchant and committed theoretical position.

Author Biography Paul Virilio was born in 1932. After the war he trained as an artist in stained glass, working with Braque and Matisse, as well as studying philosophy at the Sorbonne. In 1975, he was made director of the École spéciale darchitecture in Paris.
