Cities under siege: the new military urbanism

Public lecture hosted by LSE Cities

Cities have become the new battleground of our increasingly urban world. From the slums of the global South to the wealthy financial centres of the West, Stephen Graham’s new book Cities Under Siege traces how political violence now operates through the sites, spaces, infrastructures and symbols of the world’s rapidly expanding metropolitan areas.
