Bombing Savages in Law, in Fact, in Fiction


Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Sven Lindqvist
Chair: Professor Paul Gilroy

Recorded on 10 November 2011 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

This lecture marks the centenary of aerial bombardment. 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.
