The second edition of On Liberal Warfare by Alexander Zevin, published by Apogee Graphics.
This text is adapted from a talk Zevin gave in conjunction with the Ben Sakoguchi exhibition at Potts Gallery in 2019 which traced the emergence of liberal warfare—including America’s use of atomic weapons against Japan in the Second World War—from the imperialism of free trade as practiced by the British in the nineteenth century to applications of US airpower in the present, leading to a state of war as invisible as it is constant. Chapter headings such as “Fire Bombing to Nuclear Bombing:Hamburg to Hiroshima” are illustrated with large color photographs from the early 20th century. Over 25 plates fill this richly illustrated history of Western aggression in Asia.
Alexander Zevin is an Assistant Professor at the City University of New York, College of Staten Island, and an editor at New Left Review. He is the author of the critically acclaimed Liberalism at Large: The World according to the Economist Verso Books, 2019.
