Hollow Land - Israel's Architecture of Occupation. A talk by Eyal Weizman, architect and Director of the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths College, University of London, and author of "Hollow Land". "Devotees of the latest nuances of postmodernist styles," wrote Stirling Howieson in his review of 'Hollow Land', "will be disappointed with Weizman's book, for this is not about changing architectural fashions in hot arid climates. Hollow Land is the work of an architect chronicling the physical occupation and colonisation of Palestine by Zionism - in all its forms." The School of African and Oriental Studies, London 13 June 2007.

Quote: "When the first English settlers moved into Indian land in Massachusetts Bay and were resisted, the violence escalated into war with the Pequot Indians. The killing of Indians was seen as approved by God, the taking of land as commanded by the Bible. The Puritans cited one of the Psalms, which says: "Ask of me, and I shall give thee, the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the Earth for thy possession." (The American historian, Howard Zinn)
