Overview

Virtual Geography: Living with Global Media Events by McKenzie Wark

"The author’s capacity to grasp and interpret these [world media] events is astounding, and her ability to provide insights into a world where unbounded information is circling the earth with the speed of light is startling." —Choice

"... a wide-ranging, quirky and dextrous mix of description, theory and analysis, that documents the perils of the global telecommunications network... " —Times Literary Supplement

"... this is a stimulating, even moving, book, dense with ideas and with many quotable lines." —The New Statesman

"Wark is one of the most original and interesting cultural critics writing today." —Lawrence Grossberg

McKenzie Wark writes about the experience of everyday life under the impact of increasingly global media vectors. We no longer have roots, we have aerials. We no longer have origins, we have terminals.
