Book Colloquium:

The Forgotten Flight: Terrorism, Diplomacy and the Pursuit of Justice

Stuart H Newberger, author and international lawyer

Haldane Room, Wolfson College, Linton Rd, Oxford OX2 6UD

5.30pm, Wednesday 24 May 2017

A book colloquium featuring Stuart H Newberger, an international lawyer who represented victims of the terrorist plot hatched by Colonal Qaddafi that brought down French Airlines Flight 772. His latest book The Forgotten Flight: Terrorism, Diplomacy and the Pursuit of Justice tells the story of how he fought for justice for seven of the 170 people killed in one of the deadliest acts of terrorism in history.

This real-life legal thriller combines the international intrigue of le Carré with the courtroom drama of John Grisham, and asks how we can bring leaders of sovereign nations to account for their crimes.

Praise for The Forgotten Flight

“Gripping, shocking, forensic: a true legal thriller that captured me entirely”

Philippe Sands, author of East West Street
