Sparked by 9/11 and its aftermath, Max Page traces in his new book, The City's End: Two Centuries of Fantasies, Fears, and Premonitions of New York's Destruction (Yale UP, 2008), the depictions of all the imagined terrors that could threaten Gotham, whether extraterrestrial, international, or climatological, as presented in propaganda, paintings, movies, or other arts, and what those say about our views of urban life.  Follow this link for a review of this work.
