Synopsis

Tearing aside the veil of hypocrisy in which the USA and its allies shrouded the Kosovo war, Paul Virilio here make a trenchant denunciation of its perpetration. With his characteristic flair, Virillo demonstrates that the nature of the bombing was set by strategic rather than ethical considerations. He sees, beneath the humanitarian rhetoric, 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.

Paul Virilio was born in 1932. After the war he trained as an artist in stained glass, working with Braque and Matisse, as well as studying philosophy at the Sorbonne. In 1975 he was made director of the Ecole speciale d'architecture in Paris. He has written sixteen books, including War and Cinema and Open Sky.
