A series of suicide bombings in July 2005 concentrated the minds of the British intelligensia on the phenomenon of suicide bombing. Where do the modern origins of the suicide bombing begin, and what do its practitioners hope to achieve? Is the phenomenon better viewed through a theological lens - as a morbid expression of militant Islam - or as a practical political instrument? What can it hope to achieve? Speakers: Robert Fisk, Middle East correspondent, The Independent and author of The Great War for Civilisation; Kevin Toolis, Director and Producer of The Cult of the Suicide Bomber. Chair: Jon Randal, former foreign correspondent, Washington Post and author of Osama: The Making of a Terrorist.
