Abstract

First complete english translation of Bertha von Suttner's 'Die Barbarisierung der Luft' (1912) - a prophetic essay in which she surveys the (then) current thinking about aerial bombardment. Suttner urges the international community to renew the Declaration Against the Use of Armed Airships that was first ratified at the 1899 Hague Peace Conference. She also exhorts her readers in the future to agitate against ¿the profanation of the firmament.¿ Bertha von Suttner was a leader of the 19th century peace through law movement, and the first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. She is credited with inspiring Nobel to create the prize.
