The Visual Politics of War Volume Two

Truth and Lies of Soft Power

Editor(s): Ibrahim Saleh, Thomas Knieper
Contributors: Michael Johann, Michael Oswald, Katia Hallax Lombardi, Christof Breidenich, Hadrian Kryskiewicz, Maria Nicolas-Gavlin,

Book Description

This second issue of the book series Visual Politics of War focuses on the implications and uncertainties associated with the ‘visual politics’ of the current media hostile environment. Over the years, academics, journalists and individuals have produced a body of work connected directly, if in complex and varied ways, to contemporary ideological beliefs. This volume draws together various scholars from different parts of the world examining facets of the new visualization of wars and crisis in a range of innovative ways. All the contributors here pose questions concerned with the significance of visual political works today, and ask how images and personas have developed and been appropriated by others with their own distinct political agendas.
