The modern urban environment is rife with dangers. Crime, violence, natural disasters, wars, and terrorism are real life possibilities for which few people are prepared. The Art of Urban Survival offers readers simple, safe, and practical advice on how to prepare for, and react to dozens of life threatening situations. The author draws from psychology, sociology and anthropology to provide a deeper understanding of the laws of the urban jungle. In addition, elements of military strategy, eastern martial arts, and wilderness survival techniques are included to provide information on the full spectrum of urban survival skills.
