The development of defensive strategies encompassing the fortification and privatisation of the city has attracted significant attention during recent years and has become particularly relevant in the aftermath of September 11th. Dealing with issues of risk, security and the spatial restructuring of contemporary Western cities, this book examines how the perceived risk of terrorist attack led to changes in the physical form and institutional infrastructure of the City of London during the 1990s when the City was a prime terrorist target.
