Books Info:

Virtual Geography free pdf Wark is one of the most original and interesting cultural critics writing today. His book not only introduces a new critical perspective on the media ...but also demonstrates an intriguing style which inserts the author into the heart of the discourse. - Lawrence Grossberg. "Virtual Geography" is about connections and global events: the Gulf War, the fall of the Berlin wall, the Beijing massacre and the "Black Monday" stock market crash of 1987. McKenzie Wark analyzes the nexus between the mergent forms of global media and everyday life. He writes about the experience of the everyday under the impact of increasingly global media vectors. We no longer have roots, we have aerials. We no longer have origins, we have terminals. By paying particular attention to the way global media events come across established story-telling conventions and disturb our common sense, this work provides a narrative grasp of the world, creating phenomena such as the video game nature of the Gulf War.
