History of the car bomb traces the political development of this influential weapon of terror and resistance. Winner of the 2007 Lannan Literary Award for Non-Fiction. In this brilliant and disturbing history, Mike Davis traces the car bomb's worldwide use and development, in the process exposing the role of state intelligence agencies--particularly those of the United States, Israel, India, and Pakistan--in globalizing urban terrorist techniques. Davis argues that it is the incessant impact of car bombs, rather than the more apocalyptic threats of nuclear or bio-terrorism, that is changing cities and urban lifestyle, as privileged centers of power increasingly surround themselves with "rings of steel" against a weapon that nevertheless seems impossible to defeat.
