About the Book
'The first deterrence, nuclear deterrence, is presently being superseded by the second deterrence: a type of deterrence based on what I call 'the information bomb' associated with the new weaponry of information and communications technologies. Thus, in the very near future, and I stress this important point, it will no longer be war that is the continuation of politics by other means, it will be what I have dubbed 'the integral accident' that is the continuation of politics by other means.' 'The speed of light does not merely transform the world. It becomes the world. Globalisation is the speed of light.' 'War was my university. Everything has proceeded from there.'
