War and Cinema : The Logistics of Perception Paperback
by Paul Virilio
Part of the Radical Thinkers series
In this seminal work, Paul Virilio conducts a sweeping analysis of perception in an age of astounding visual impact.
Through a technical history of weaponry, photography, and cinematography, an account of key war strategists and movie directors, and a narrative that places pin-up girls alongside satellite feeds and ranges from Hollywood to Hitler's bunker, Virilio shows how military ways of seeing have transformed the world as we know it.
