Book Description:

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. It brings together new writing by the world's leading analysts of urban space and military and terrorist violence from the fields of geography, architecture, planning, sociology, critical theory, politics, international relations, and military studies. Arguing that urban spaces are now the critical, strategic sites of geopolitical struggle, the contributors combine cutting-edge theoretical reflections with empirical case studies. They provide up-to-date analyses of a range of specific urban sites, including those involved in the Cold War, the Balkan wars, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the 9/11 attacks, the "War on Terror" attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq, and urban antiglobalization battles. The book offers readers a sophisticated perspective on the violence that is engulfing our increasingly urbanized world.
