'An exciting ride on the Virilian rollercoaster, where even concrete bunkers (almost) 'melt into air'. This book marks an important advance - written by someone who, like Virilio himself, is sensitive to both the aesthetic and the ethical implications of his work.' - Jonathan Hale, Reader in Architectural Theory, University of Nottingham, UK
