Booklab: The Scientific Way of Warfare

I'm happy to announce that CTlab will be hosting its second virtual symposium on 5-8 December, featuring Dr. Antoine Bousquet (Birkbeck College) and his new book, The Scientific Way of Warfare: Order and Chaos on the Battlefields of Modernity (London: Hurst & Co. Publishers; New York: Columbia University Press, 2009). This second symposium follows the CTlab-hosted public lecture, "Feral Cities and the Scientific Way of Warfare", which saw Dr. Bousquet and Geoff Manaugh, the author of the superb BLDBLOG, discussing historical forms of battlefield management and future conflict in cities. It also continues the high standard of discussion and debate set in CTlab's first symposium, Social Sciences in War: Defending Hamdan. Dr. Bousquet will be initiating the dialogue, with notable scholars from the US, Canada, and the UK joining the conversation.
