Additional Book Details

′If you′ve ever felt like we′re going nowhere fast, and you′d like to know why - preferably sometime before you die - read this book′ - James Der Derian, Brown University and UMASS/Amherst




Examining how the ′here and now′ of space, territory, the body, are being redefined by new technologies and how this undoes simplistic versions of the globalization thesis, Paul Virilio demonstrates how technology has made inertia the defining condition of modernity.



An instantaneous present has replaced space and the sovereignty of territory; everything happens without the need to go anywhere.
