October 21, 2010 - Priya Satia explores parallels between the British occupation of Iraq after World War I and the current American occupation. She focuses on the use of airpower as a technology policing and subduing that part of the world, in particular how British perceptions of the region and the postwar emergence of British mass democracy inspired its use. She also discusses how the British period has shaped American thinking about the region and the Iraqi response to the American presence.
This talk was presented as part of the Classes Without Quizzes series at Stanford's 2010 Reunion Homecoming.
