Buda's Wagon: A Brief History of the Car Bomb / Mike Davis

Availability: 1 in stock
Paperback
£9.99

In this provocative history, Mike Davis traces the car bomb s worldwide use and development, in the process exposing the role of state intelligence agencies - particularly those of the United States, Israel, India, and Pakistan - in globalizing urban terrorist techniques. Davis argues that it is the incessant impact of car bombs, rather than the more apocalyptic threats of nuclear or bioterrorism, that is changing cities and urban lifestyles, as privileged centres of power increasingly surround themselves with 'rings of steel' against a weapon that nevertheless seems impossible to defeat.
