      1. A well-known urban theorist and historian, Davis sheds light on the gross inequalities and growing gap between rich and poor in the age of globalization through an examination of the world’s slums in the Global South. He concludes with the claim that the ‘war on terrorism’ is in fact a ‘world war between the American empire and the world’s slum dwellers.’
