        Paul Virilio

      1. Most famous for his writings on time, technology, and war in the 1980s, Virilio remains an active theorist and unusually astute critic of our contemporary world. In this small volume he looks at the future of urban dwelling and migration through an analysis of the global city. Threats such as ecological catastrophe and the fragmentation of reality/history/time brought about by technology underline how we are increasingly confronted with a ‘black hole of globalized interconnectivity.’
