I have now been able to take the time to read through 'War is Beautiful', and I am not prepared to write a review at this time because I want to give it some further thought, and perhaps see if I can reach out to David Shields once I have articulated some questions in my head. That said, if you are interested in the topic of the power of images, and manipulation through photography, I do strongly recommend you buy and read this book regardless. It gives one a lot to think about, and my review will probably make more sense if you have read it anyway.

Yes, you can get it from Amazon too. You know that, I know that, everyone knows that. But I am going to promote the full-price edition anyway, in the interests of the high quality of work done by both this author in the past, and this publisher. So there.
