Counter
From Operation Desert Storm to the conflict in Bosnia, computerization and other scientific advances have brought about a revolution in warfare. This book shows how our high-tech age has spawned both increasingly powerful weapons and a rhetoric that disguises their apocalyptic potential in catch phrases like "smart weapons," "cyberwar," and "bloodless combat." A skillful combination of trenchant cultural study(/WRITERS: CHANGE CULTURAL STUDY TO "SOCIAL ANALYSIS" IN SOME SITUATIONS), provocative illustrations, and engrossing military, technical, and historical analysis, Postmodern War sheds new light on the ways we conceptualize and conduct war today.
