Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Tearing aside the veil of hypocrisy in which the USA and its allies shrouded the Kosovo war, Paul Virilio here makes a trenchant denunciation of its perpetration.

Written with his characteristic flair, Virilio?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, Virilio demonstrates that the nature of the bombing was set by strategic rather than ethical considerations. Beneath the humanitarian rhetoric, Virilio 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 Virilio calls our ?fin-de-siecle infantilisation? in which the reality of battle is reduced to flickering images on a screen.
