I want to bring your attention to a forthcoming public lecture co-sponsored by the History, Government, and Russian Departments; Jewish and Israel Studies; and the Office of Academic Affairs. TODAY, September 19, 2011. 4:30 p.m. Allbritton, Room 103.
“Death Orders delineates psychohistorical patterns of worldwide terrorism during the past century. It shows why terrorists? objectives degenerated from punishment of political elites to indiscriminate violence against civilians. Death Orders ventures beyond politics and psychology; it is the first work to present modern terrorism as a form of ‘dark spirituality.'”Assistant Professor of History, Department of History and College of Social Studies
The lecture will be by Professor Anna Geifman (Boston University) on her new book, DEATH ORDERS: THE VANGUARD OF MODERN TERRORISM IN REVOLUTIONARY RUSSIA.
I hope that you are able to make it, it promises to be an interesting and provocative talk.
Sincerely, Victoria Smolkin-Rothrock,
