A couple of years ago I stated my intention to review A.C. Grayling's Among the Dead Cities, a book which examines the ethics of Allied civilian bombing during WWII. Unfortunately, I finished the book but never got around to writing a review, despite what I feel is the book's ongoing relevance to the current state of world affairs. Thankfully, however, I noticed that the the BookTV discussion of the book is hosted at Fora.tv - the talk is about two hours long and also features Christopher Hitchens who debates Grayling on the justification of bombing civilian targets during war. The bit below is a 15 minute sample clip, to watch the whole thing you can either click the preceding Fora.tv link or the "Watch Full Program" button on the video.
