Virilio Reader by James der Derian
Book DescriptionOver a diverse career as a professor of architecture, urbanist, film critic, military historian, and peace strategist, Paul Virilio has produced over a dozen influential books that chart new territory on the impact of new technologies on society, war and the media, the virtualization of international politics and most notably, for his theories on speed as the dominant element of modern life.Representing the next wave of French social theorists, Virilio's unique perspectives on modern society will capture the attention of the social sciences, computer sciences, communications and humanities as well as general readers interested in the impact of new technology on everyday life. In this remarkable collection of English language translations, The Virilio Reader contains five new translations: The Suicidal State, The Critical Space, The Strategy Beyond, Polar Inertia and The Desert Screen, and an interview conducted by Der Derian with Virilio in a Paris caf, along with his other most influential works that have appeared over his vast career. Also includes: Military Space, The State of Emergency, A Traveling Shot Over Eighty Years, The Vision Machine, The Art of the Motor, and Continental Drift.

Books By Author James der Derian
Sustainable Diplomacies, Hardback (August 2010)
Sustainable Diplomacies looks at how to create conditions for the reconciliation of rival ways of living, the formation of durable relationships and the promotion of global peace and security. The authors draw inspiration from the history of diplomatic thought as well as from environmental, anthropological, religious and postcolonial studies.
Virtuous War, Hardback (February 2009)
Takes the reader from a family history of war and genocide to virtual battlespaces in the Mojave Desert, Silicon Valley, Hollywood and American universities. This book reveals how a misguided faith in virtuous war to right the wrongs of the world instead paved the way for a flawed response to 9/11 and a disastrous war in Iraq.
Critical Practices in International Theory, Paperback (December 2008)
Contains essays that cover a variety of issues including diplomacy, alienation, terrorism, intelligence, national security, various forms of warfare, the role of information technology in international relations, poststructuralist theory, and the military-entertainment-media matrix.
