Images of War and War of Images, Gérard Hugues and Karine Hildenbrand (eds.)

HUGUES, Gérard and Karine HILDENBRAND (eds.), Images of War and War of Images, Newcastle upon Tyne : Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2008, 260p. ISBN 978-1-8471-8543-3

Contributors to this volume address the issue of the representation of warfare, in an attempt to assess the veracity or mendacity of war images and their probable impact upon the sequence of events. War images may trigger unfathomable horror or conversely and paradoxically attain sublimity. The margin is sometimes narrow between ethics and aesthetics, let alone the almost irrepressible shift from information to propaganda.
