In his most provocative writing yet, the radical urban theorist Mike Davis explores the combat zone that is contemporary urban America, the site of a perpetual battle waged within cities and against nature. Davis examines themes of urban life today - white flight, housing and job segregation and discrimination - and looks at areas he calls national sacrifice zones, military landscapes that simulated warfare and arms production have rendered uninhabitable. Davis begins his apocalyptically inflected tour with a trip to New York's Ground Zero and to the diabolic miracle of Las Vegas.
In his latest book, Chris Hedges investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Autographed copies are now available, as well as a Truthdig Original DVD of a book talk by Chris Hedges.
