Cities in a Time of Terror: Space, Territory, and Local Resilience

Topics: Terrorism,

Using case studies from over 25 countries, this book explores the characteristics and ramifications of urban terrorism. It examines the characteristics and evolution of urban terrorism, how terrorists use a city's own assets against it, and attempts at increasing resilience through surveillance and policy changes. It concludes that despite pessimistic predictions for the future, local resilience is an inherent and long-term condition of cities, but one which must be supported and advanced by leaders in the political sphere.
