It argues that resilience is neither new nor necessarily about protecting ordinary people, but part of a long struggle over the control of cities. This book will make fascinating reading for all those concerned with the future of nations in which arguments for liberty appear to be losing out to the demands of security and surveillance, of cities in a world becoming more urban and more multicultural, and of communities in which we are all expected to be watching each other for signs of terrorism."@en ;
