This issue of Thesis Eleven – has been published to mark the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.– the articles are all new and all confront one of the most pressing questions of the day: what do the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki mean for us on the occasions of their 70th anniversary?

Despite the scale of the atrocity, the impact of the bombings on social, philosophical and cultural thought has not been what one might think.
