Professor Steve Graham features on an "It Could Happen Here" podcast

Steve Graham's book "Cities under Siege" is cited in Episode 3 "The State Strikes Back"

In this nine-part series Robert Evans will walk listeners through exactly how a second American Civil War could happen. Using hard facts, historical anecdotes and his own experiences reporting from two real civil wars, he’ll leave you believing it COULD happen here.

Each episode reveals more of our possible future, covering the mix of protests and terrorism that might spark such a conflict and walking through how the government would try to stop it. From drone bombs assassinating police officers, to a rural insurgency starving America’s cities, everything he will talk about is backed by real-world examples and the opinions of worried experts.

This is not conspiracy-mongering or a panicked shout into the abyss. This is a sober dissection of the Second American Civil War, before it happens.

Professor Steve Graham's "Cities under Siege: The New Military Urbanism" book is cited in episode 3, The State Strikes Back.
