This book explores how the experience of war and related atrocities tend to be visually expressed and how such articulations
and representations are circulated and consumed. Each chapter of this volume examines how an image can contribute to a richer
understanding of the experience of war and atrocity and thus they contribute to the burgeoning field of the "criminology of
war". Topics include the destruction of war in oppositional cultural forms - comparing the Nazi period with the ISIS destruction
of Palmyra - and the visual aesthetics of violence deployed by Jihadi terrorism. The contributors are a multi-disciplinary
team drawn mainly from criminology but also sociology, international relations, gender studies, English and the visual arts.
This book will advance this field in new directions with refreshing, original work.
