Pub. Date:
When you dabble with death, there's nothing abstract about a loaded gun. A born detective despite himself, assistant minister of culture Murray Whelan digs, and the deeper he goes, the more puzzling the mystery of a young artist's death becomes. Tightly plotted, funny, and briskly paced, this first Murray Whelan mystery won the Ned Kelly Prize for Best Crime Novel, Australia's equivalent to our Edgar Award.

display_description Bombing Civilians examines a crucial question: why did military planning in the early twentieth century shift its focus from bombing military targets to bombing civilians? From the British bombing of Iraq in the early 1920s to the most recent policies in Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Lebanon, Bombing Civilians analyzes in detail the history of indiscriminate bombing, examining the fundamental questions of how this theory justifying mass killing originated and why it was employed as a compelling military strategy for decades, both before and since the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
