Strategy of Deception by Paul Virilio
Book DescriptionWritten with his characteristic flair, Virillo s latest book is a trenchant denunciation of the Kosovo war in which he successfully unites theory with a riveting study of the conflict. Tearing aside the veil of hypocrisy in which the USA and its allies wrapped the war, Virillo demonstrates that the nature of the bombing was set by strategic rather than ethical considerations. Beneath the humanitarian rhetoric, Virillo sees a sinister innovation in the methods of waging war: territorial space is being replaced by orbital space in which a system of global telesurveillance is linked to the destructive power of bombers and missiles. Governments, the military and the media are becoming part of a seamless and self-justifying process linked by new information and arms technologies. Passionate and political, "Strategy of Deception" is a vital examination not only of the war in Yugoslavia but also what Virillo calls our fin-de-siecle infantilization in which the reality of battle is reduced to flickering images on a screen."

Great Accelerator, Hardback (May 2012)
On 10 September 2008, amid much fanfare, the Great Collider run by CERN in Geneva was turned on. The Collider was supposed to fire protons around a seventeen-mile loop of tunnels, causing them to crash into one another at close to the speed of light and break into even tinier particles.
