Sven Lindqvist: Bombing Savages: In Law, in Fact, in Fiction

More than just a military revolution, this development redrew the legal and moral boundaries between civilians and combatants and spread the theatre of war into cities and domestic spaces. Sven Lindqvist is the author of over 30 widely translated books including A History of Bombing. The lecture is part of a joint initiative of LSE Sociology and the Sociology Department at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Date: Thursday 10 November 2011
Time: 6.30-8pm
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker: Sven Lindqvist
Chair: Professor Paul Gilroy
