Dr Anna Feigenbaum, a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Media and Communication, has released the book “Tear Gas - from the Battlefields of WWI to the Streets of Today” where she discusses the history, development and use of tear gas.
Anna will travel around the UK, USA and Canada from November to April on a book tour where she will talk about her newest release.
During the BBC’s Radio 4 programme Thinking Allowed, Anna spoke about the poisonous agent that causes psychological and physical torture.
She said: “Some of the things that these gases do is burn the throat, can cause vomiting and nausea, digestive problems, diarrhoea and more severely, can cause miscarriages and respiratory problems.”
Anna Feigenbaum is also co-author of the book Protest Camps, and her work has appeared in Vice, The Atlantic, Al Jazeera America, The Guardian, Salon, Financial Times, Open Democracy, New Internationalist, and Waging Nonviolence.
