The Least of All Possible Evils by Eyal WeizmanMosaic Rooms, Kensington, London

This event is to celebrate the launch of Eyal Weizman’s new book published by Verso, The Least of All Possible Evils.
Weizman is the author of the critically acclaimed Hollow Land, which explored the political space created by Israel’s colonial occupation. Following on from this, Weizman pursues the problem of the lesser evil – the moderation and minimization of violence as a mechanism of government and control. The Least of All Possible Evils investigates its political consequences and traces its intellectual genealogy from classical ethics and Christian theology, through the political theory of Hannah Arendt to contemporary debates on humanitarianism.
