From the days of Mammoth hunting to the era of scud-busting, humans have created images of war. In fact, human beings are the only creatures who engage in both war and the making of pictorial images. Perlmutter shows how art and war arise from the same source: the hunter’s eye.
Visions of War analyses the thirteen-thousand-year legacy of pictures of war from Stone Age cave paintings to the instantaneous images of the Gulf War. ISBN: 0312273320 Publisher: ST. MARTIN’S GRIFFIN
