About this Book

Cities, War and Terrorism is the first book to look critically at the ways in which warfare, terrorism and counter-terrorism policies intersect in cities in the post Cold-War period.

  • A path-breaking exploration of the intersections of war, terrorism and cities
  • Argues that contemporary cities are the key strategic sites of geopolitical conflict
  • Written by the world's leading analysts of the intersections of urban space and military and terrorist violence
  • Draws on cutting-edge research from geography, history, architecture, planning, sociology, critical theory, politics, international relations and military studies
  • Provides up-to-date empirical analyses of specific conflicts, including 9/11, the "War on Terrorism", the Balkan wars, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and urban antiglobalization battles
  • Offers lay readers a sophisticated perspective on the violence that is engulfing our increasingly urbanised world
