Abstract

As the notion of ‘collateral damage’ – or the unintentional yet foreseen killing of civilians in war – has come to shape contemporary military conflict, Frederik Rosén undertakes a historical examination of its evolution, place and role in modern warfare. Collateral Damage: A Candid History of a Peculiar Form of Death offers a timely and intellectually engaging investigation of the historical, conceptual and philosophical underpinnings of this highly controversial, yet ostensibly legalised form of killing, writes Alexis Bushnell.
