Publisher's Summary

Since prehistory, bunkers have been built as protection from cataclysmic social and environmental forces, and as places of power and transformation. Today, the bunker has become the extreme expression of our greatest fears: from pandemics to climate change and nuclear war. And once you look, it doesn't take long to start seeing bunkers everywhere.

In Bunker, acclaimed urban explorer and cultural geographer Bradley Garrett explores the global and rapidly growing movement of 'prepping' for social and environmental collapse, or 'Doomsday'. From the 'dread merchants' hustling safe spaces in the American mid-West to eco-fortresses in Thailand, from geoscrapers to armoured mobile bunkers, Bunker is a brilliant, original and never less than deeply disturbing story from the frontlines of the way we live now: an illuminating reflection on our age of disquiet and dread that brings it into new, sharp focus. 

The bunker, Garrett shows, is all around us: in malls, airports, gated communities, the vehicles we drive. Most of all, he shows, it's in our minds.

Good subject, good reader but drop politics

Was good but would have been better if the author kept the political leanings to themselves. Anti republican and anti trump jibes get boring

Brilliant

Eye opening book and feels all too real in the mad year of 2020. A very nuanced view to prepper culture.

What a great look inside the prepped world!

The author has done a great job-the research and the scope of travel alone is quite mind boggling. The book is very well written. It is very interesting and the narration is beautiful.

Memorising insight into a hidden world

As my title says this is a "memorising insight into a hidden world"
I would recommend this read to those that have an interest in prepping or interest history off bunkers or anyone that may have thought that bunkers were just for the crazy.
