Overview

Ambitious in both scope and content, At War seeks to identify both the changes in the evolution of warfare from the beginning of the 20th century until today, and to show the imagery and thus society's mental and cultural constructs surrounding the issue. But this book on war approaches the age-old subject from a new perspective—the viewer isn't exposed only to now-familiar images of war: soldiers, guns, trenches, victims, and limbless survivors. At War also provides interpretations and depictions of war from artists such as Otto Dix, Barbara Kruger, Kerr Eby, and Henry Moore; children's drawings of their war-torn lands; and war paraphenalia, including a Bomb Dog and a clapping device for a one-armed serviceman.Essays by Jon Lee Anderson, Eudald Carbonell, Manuel Delgado,Andreas Huyssen, José Maria Ridao, Robert Sala and Michael Walzer. Flexi-bound, 6.75 x 9.5 in./378 pgs / Illustrated throughout.
