This review is from: Life After Doomsday: Survivalist Guide to Nuclear War and Other Major Disasters (Paperback)
I went on a splurge of survivalist books as a result of the August 2011 riots in London. Such riots are not a new phenomenon as senoir Police officers in th eMet would have you believe, the author locates a similar disturbance in New York in 1856. However he classifies it as a disaster man made. From there he goes on to expound what you can do about the way a disaster will run and it all comes down to basic preparedness and what you need to be prepared with and for. You can get out of Dodge or hunker down and he explains the options and the dilemmas. Geographically this book is set in the USA but its premises are valid worldwide as examples show. Yes it does deal with "guns" in a short chapter and the advice is distilled and I will distill it even further - your starting point is a pump action shotgun take it or leave it and if you are leaving it do not bother with the rest of the arsenal. There are other things to worry about.
