The Mosaic Rooms invites you to join us for the launch of Richard Seymour’s new book:
The Liberal Defense of Murder on:
Wednesday 18 July, 7pm
The departures of Tony Blair and George Bush offered the hope of an end to the ‘war on terror’ and a turn away from liberal interventionism. Barack Obama promised change, but we have seen him justify ‘intervention’ in Libya on humanitarian grounds, increased troops in Afghanistan and escalated operations in Pakistan.
As rumblings grow louder of an intervention in Syria, Richard will be discussing why an understanding of the history of liberal support for war and imperialism is more vital than ever. He will be in discussion with Anindya Bhattacharyya, an activist and journalist for Socialist Worker.
Richard Seymour lives, works and writes in London and runs the popular Lenin’s Tomb website and writes for the Guardian. Anindya Bhattacharyya writes about philosophy, politics and mathematics at bat020.com
