Summary

#xE2;#x80;#x9C;Civilizationor the militarization of science?#xE2;#x80;#x9D; With this typically hyperbolic andprovocative question as a starting point, Paul Virilio explores thedominion of techno-science, cyberwar and the new informationtechnologies over our lives . . . and deaths. After the era of theatomic bomb, Virilio posits an era of genetic and information bombswhich replace the apocalyptic bang of nuclear death with the whimper ofa subliminally reinforced eugenics. We are entering the age ofeuthanasia. These exhilarating bulletins from the information war extend the range of Virilio's work. The Information Bomb spanseverything from Fukuyama to Larry Flynt, the Sensation exhibition ofNew British Art to space travel, all seen through the optic ofVirilio's trenchant and committed theoretical position.
