Urbicide reviewed

coward_urbicideMy book Urbicide: The Politics of Urban Destruction is reviewed in the latest issue of Global Discourse I have supplied a introduction outlining the basic argument of Urbicide as well as a response to the reviewers.

You can find my introduction, the reviews and my response, here: http://global-discourse.com/contents/urbicide-by-martin-coward/

As with all research, the monograph represents a snapshot of thought about this variety of urban violence, rather than the last word on it. Reflecting on that snapshot, I think there is much I still agree with, but there are also things I would change. This has thus been a valuable opportunity to reflect on my argument about the widespread and deliberate destruction of urban fabric and to highlight what I think its key contributions are as well as to ponder some of its limitations.

My thanks to the reviewers for their thoughts as well as to the editors of Global Discourse for both the original invitation and their work compiling and publishing the review section.

    hey Prof. Coward, your book was reviewed in the same issue of the journal that published some of the papers presented at the Anarchism and International Relations conference I went to in Bristol!
