Drawing on the work of Barthes, Eco, Foucault, Baudrillard, Burgin and Tagg, and on the historians of mentalities, War and Photography presents a theoretical approach to the understanding of press photography in its historical and contemporary context. Brothers applies her argument with special reference to French and British newspaper images of the Spanish Civil War, a selection of which is presented in the book. Rejecting analyses based upon the content of the images alone, she argues that photographic meaning is largely predetermined by its institutional and cultural context. Acting as witnesses despite themselves, photographs convey a wealth of information not about any objective reality, but about the collective attitudes and beliefs particular to the culture in which they operate.

Her shrewd selection of over 600 fascinating photos (many in colour) illustrate a history that meets the ultimate test; open to any page and youre hooked ... and its free from tormenting academic jargon. Camera Arts This groundbreaking survey of international photography, which examines the discipline across the full range of its uses by both professionals and amateurs, has been expanded and brought up to date for this second edition. Each of the eight chapters takes a period of up to forty years and examines the medium through the lenses of art, science, social science, travel, war, fashion, the mass media and individual practitioners. These broad topics complement a fully developed cultural context whose emphasis is more on key ideas than individuals. The author also pays close attention to how contemporary practitioners, commentators and beholders have talked about specific works, the nature of photography and the photographers changing role in society.

Den Berichten ”von der Front“ in Wort und Bild kommt seit jeher entscheidende Bedeutung für die zeitgenössische Wahrnehmung und Legitimation eines Krieges zu. Diese erste Geschichte der Kriegsberichterstattung stellt deshalb die Akteure selbst in den Mittelpunkt: die Wort- und Bildkorrespondenten, ihre Wahrnehmungsweisen und ihre Praktiken der Berichterstattung; sowie die Militärs, ihre zentralen Subjekte und zunehmend ihre Kontrolleure. Während im 18. Jahrhundert noch offizielle Bulletins aus der Feder von Offizieren die Berichterstattung dominierten, etablierte sich in der Epoche der internationalisierten Pressemärkte der Beruf des zivilen Kriegsberichterstatters. Die Bedingungen, unter denen Journalisten und Fotografen im Krieg arbeiteten, ihr Umgang mit Kontrollmaßnahmen und Zensur und die Veränderung der Medienlandschaften haben zu einer Wahrnehmung des Berichterstatters als ”Augenzeuge“ und ”Aufklärer“ beigetragen. Mit diesem Buch liegt nun erstmals ein fundiertes Überblickswerk vor, das vom Siebenjährigen Krieg (1756-1763) bis zum 2003 begonnenen Irakkrieg 250 Jahre internationaler Frontberichterstattung erschließt.

This is a truly encyclopedic survey of artists’ responses - both official and personal - to the horrors of war. 'Art and War' reveals the sheer diversity of artists’ portrayals of this most devastating aspect of the human condition - from the ‘heroic’ paintings of Benjamin West and John Singer Sargent to brutal and iconic works by artists from Goya to Picasso, and the equally oppositional work of Leon Golub, Nancy Spero and others who reacted with fury to the Vietnam War. Laura Brandon pays particular attention to work produced in response to World War I and World War II, as well as to more recent art and memorial work by artists as diverse as Barbara Kruger, Alfredo Jar and Maya Lin. She looks finally to the reactions of contemporary artists such as Langlands and Bell to the US invasion in 2001 of Afghanistan and the ‘War on Terror’.

With Flags of Our Fathers (2006) and Letters from Iwo Jima (2006), Clint Eastwood made a unique contribution to film history, being the first director to make two films about the same event. Eastwood's films examine the battle over Iwo Jima from two nations' perspectives, in two languages, and embody a passionate view on conflict, enemies, and heroes. Together these works tell the story behind one of history’s most famous photographs, Leo Rosenthal’s "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima." In this volume, international scholars in political science and film, literary, and cultural studies undertake multifaceted investigations into how Eastwood's diptych reflects war today. Fifteen essays explore the intersection among war films, American history, and Japanese patriotism. They present global attitudes toward war memories, icons, and heroism while offering new perspectives on cinema, photography, journalism, ethics, propaganda, war strategy, leadership, and the war on terror.

"In Photography as Activism, Michelle Bogre discusses the philosophy and history of photography's role in social reform. Beginning with the invention of the camera, she traces the earliest instances of photographic activism through to today's emerging practices, profiling the most prominent activists of their time and their legendary images. Also profiled are contemporary photographer activists, including Jonathan Torgovnik. A photograph from Torgovnik's activist project, Intended Consequences, about the mass rape of Tutsi women during the Rwanda genocide in 1994, is featured on the cover of this book. His photographs spread awareness of the consequences of genocide and sexual violence, and have helped the Rwanda Foundation (www.foundationrwanda.org) that he created raise more than a million dollars to fund secondary school education for the children. Other featured photographers include: -Eugene Richards -Marcus Bleasdale -Tom Stoddart -Jonathan Torgovnik -Edward Kashi -Brent Stirton -Stephen Dupont -Walter Astrada With an appendix featuring additional websites, magazines, galleries, festivals, foundations, grants, and advice for the budding activist, this book is not only a comprehensive study of activist photography, but also a call to action for photographers with a cause"--Provided by publisher.

Modernism has long been characterized as more concerned with aesthetics than politics, but Jessica Berman argues that modernist narrative bridges the gap between ethics and politics, connecting ethical attitudes and responsibilities—ideas about what we ought to be and do—to active creation of political relationships and the way we imagine justice. She challenges the divisions usually drawn between "modernist" and "committed" writing, arguing that a continuum of political engagement undergirds modernisms worldwide and that it is strengthened rather than hindered by formal experimentation.
