Summary
"In The War Body on Screen, contributors utilize textual analysis, psychoanalysis, post-colonial theory, comparative analysis, narrative theory, discourse analysis, representation and identity as their theoretical guideposts, defining war in hard and soft terms to not only include the literal manifestations of state-sanctioned violence and "terrorist" insurgency. but the discursive and metaphoric forms of war - war as an expression of power and subjugation, and war as an interior and interpersonal mechanism that writes identities and scripts differences on the body."--BOOK JACKET
