El nuevo urbanismo militar

Stephen Graham

Resumen


Uno tiende a olvidar que la mayoría de las ciudades del mundo se edificaron, al menos en parte, como construcciones militares. La historia de cómo los espacios urbanos se planearon, levantaron y habitaron no puede ser contada sin considerar el papel central del poder y el control. Antes y después de la era moderna, las ciudades y las ciudades-Estado fueron, al mismo tiempo, los agentes y blancos de los conflictos; el saqueo y la matanza de sus habitantes, fortificados, era el evento central de toda guerra.
