About the Book

Showing how the upswell of paranoia and growing demand for security in the post-9/11 world has paradoxically created widespread insecurity, these varied essays examine how this anxiety-laden mindset erodes spaces both architectural and personal, encroaching on all aspects of everyday life. Starting from the most literal level--barricades and barriers in front of buildings, beefed up border patrols, gated communities, safe rooms, --to more abstract levels--enhanced surveillance at public spaces such as airports, increasing worries about contagion, the psychological predilection for fortified space--the contributors cover the full gamut of securitized public life that is defining the zeitgeist of twenty-first century America


About the Author:

Michael Sorkin is an architect, professional writer, and professor at City College. He is a frequent contributor to the New York Times, and is generally regarded as one of the most prominent architectural writers in America.
