Product Description

Are viewers inured - or incited - to violence by the depiction of cruelty? Susan Sontag (On Photography, The Volcano Lover) offers an extended meditation on the imagery of atrocity - from Goya's The Disasters of War to photographic documents of the American Civil War, lynchings of blacks in the South, and the Nazi death camps, to contemporary horrific images of Bosnia, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, and New York City on September 11, 2001. There are no photographs in this book. Reading it is a near-obligatory act of conscience. 126p.
