Stunning, hilarious, and politically incendiary, this full-color poster book reworks classic American World War I and II propaganda into commentaries on war, peace, and patriotism for the post-September 11 era. The forty one-sided posters make fun of war mentality, the Bush White House, Homeland Security, the War on Terror, Ashcroft, the 2000 Presidential election, the military-industrial complex, and much more. Forty posters of yesteryear such as Uncle Sam's "I Want You," and "Loose Lips Sink Ships" are reworked with new messages of peace and protest.

You Back the Attack! We'll Bomb Who We Want!: Remixed War Propaganda based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The author creates new posters for the current war from old posters from previous wars, particularly WWII. Amusing and droll. The author does us the favor of providing the original posters in the back of the book to compare with his altered version.
Great combination art of WW2 propaganda posters and critical perspective of the US 'War on Terrorism'. Fun and very insightful.
