Can anyone recommend a detailed urban survival manual that offers suggestions, advice and techniques?

I am looking for a book similar to the US Army’s Survival Manual. However, the Army’s survival guide does not have a section on urban survival. I live in a major city and want to get information on where to get water, food and shelter in the event I run out of supplies in a war, financial collapse, governmental take-over or natural disaster. I like the book “Steal This Book,” but the information in it is very outdated from the 1970s. Anyone know of some comparable books? Thanks.

    I would actually recommend that you watch a show in the discovery channel called “Man vs Wild.” The host is dropped of at a different remote location every episode with nothing but basic items that a normal person would carry and is followed by a camera crew, unaided, and shows you how to survive in the wilderness of the desert, the mountains, the freezing cold, the bitter heat, the tropical rainforest, etc…..

    A better idea would be for you to take some classes in first aid and volunteer to participate in disaster relief drills. If you look around you can find many opportunities to prepare yourself to make a difference after a disaster.

    Are you planning to wage a war against Gang Bangers in your City?
