Tracing the evolution of urban terrorism, this book explains what kinds of cities have become prime targets, why terrorism has become lethal, and how its inspiration has changed from secular to religious. It also includes a discussion of local resilience - the city's capacity to bounce back from attack - and suggests how that can be sustained.
