Ideas Massey Lectures 2013: Truth and Honour (Part 2 of 5)

The second lecture in the 2013 Massey Lectures series, Blood: The Stuff of Life, by celebrated author Lawrence Hill (The Book of Negroes). We associate blood with notions of truth and honour in at least two ways: first, how we go about removing it from human bodies, and once it's out, what we use it for; then, what happens when we meddle with the composition of our blood.
