Fighting Words and Images is the first comprehensive interdisciplinary and theoretical analysis of war representations across time periods from Classical Antiquity to the present day and across languages, cultures, and media including print, painting, sculpture, architecture, and photography. Featuring contributions from across the humanities and social sciences, Fighting Words and Images is organized into four thematically consistent, analytically rigourous sections that discuss ways to overcome the conceptual challenges associated with theorizing war representation. This collection creatively and insightfully explains the nature, origins, dynamics, structure, and impact of a wide variety of war representations.

'Fighting Words and Images is a smart, innovative, and stimulating collection... The editors have pulled off a remarkable feat: an edited volume where many individual chapters shine, yet the sum far outweighs the individual parts.' -- Stephen M. Norris Slavic Review vol 72:02:2013
