Jon Stallworthy sends me details of a forthcoming lecture series at Wolfson College, Oxford, titled 'War and Civilization'. The line-up is extremely impressive:
29 April Niall Ferguson: War and Finance
6 May Geoffrey Hill: War and Poetry
13 May Marina Warner: War and Pity
20 May Ian Buruma: War and Liberation.
The lectures start at 6pm in the Hall of Wolfson College, Oxford. All are welcome.
