Extremely Loud

Sound as A Weapon

Book - 2013
Rate this:
In this disturbing and wide-ranging account, acclaimed French journalist Juliette Volcler looks at the long history of efforts by military and police forces to deploy sound against enemies, criminals and law-abiding citizens. In an insidious merger of music, technology, and political repression, loud sound has emerged in the last decade as an unlikely mechanism for intimidating individuals as well as controlling large groups. Extremely Loud documents this little-known modern phenomenon, exposing it as a sinister threat to the peace and quiet.
