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.
