We tend to think of war as being fought in specific, bounded places--war zones. But since the end of World War II, warfare has taken different forms, with the wars themselves often undeclared and their battlegrounds ill-defined. This book addresses that shift.

War Zones examines the people, landscapes, and built environments that are subject to both the civil and military aims and control of armed conflicts today. From colonial or total war, asymmetric war or counterinsurgency to barricaded or besieged cities, refugee camps or borderlines, to nuclear bunkers or "war ghosts," to states of emergency and drone warfare, these texts disclose the complicated spatial aspects and process of formation of war zones past and present.
