Translated into twenty languages, Prof. Graham’s work has been influential across a range of urban, technological, social, and political debates across the world.. His books include Splintering Urbanism; Telecommunications and the City (both with Simon Marvin) and Disrupted Cities: When Infrastructures Fail and Cities Under Siege: The New Military Urbanism. His latest book is Vertical: The City From Satellites to Bunkers.
