Summary "An American artist witnesses the Quebec spring 2012 student strike on the streets of Montreal. The brutal police response and their violent tactics trigger an exploration of urban planning and its hidden connections to military strategies. Marshal Bugeaud's urban warfare tactics in Algeria, Haussmann's plan for Paris, planning and repression in the New World; theory and personal experience collide into an ambitious and poetic cartoon memoir"--Publisher description.
