Acclaimed Swedish writer Sven Lindqvist will present a lecture and seminar sponsored by the Center for Cultural Studies. The lecture, titled "Bombing the Savages in International Law and Military Practice," is Thursday, February 14, at 4 p.m. in the Bay Tree Conference Room D; the seminar, titled "A History of Bombing," is Friday, February 15, at 10 a.m. in the Oakes Mural Room.
Sven Lindqvist is known internationally for his books on China and Latin America.
His new book, A History
of Bombing, translated from the Swedish by Linda Haverty Rugg, traces bombing
through the centuries as a fundamentally racist act, something honorable soldiers
would only inflict on rebels, savages, and infidels. A History of Bombing
was universally praised on its publication in Sweden and was awarded several prizes,
including a major prize from the Swedish Academy. His previous works available in
English include Exterminate
All the Brutes and The
Skull Measurer's Mistake.
