Image Warfare in the War on Terror provides an innovative re-examination of the war on terror, arguing that since September 11th 2001, image warfare has replaced techno-war as the dominant warfighting model. Roger suggests that image warfare is a form of warfare in which Al Qaeda currently dominates while the West is still playing catch-up. By dealing with the deployment of disturbing images generated by the 9/11 attacks from bin Laden videos, suicide terrorism and hostage executions to prisoner abuses, Roger provides us with a new vocabulary through which these acts can be discussed and understood. Offering the first comprehensive assessment of image warfare from an International Relations perspective, this study also engages with media studies and visual cultures to reveal an intriguing new line of political communications explained through Roger's conceptual terms 'image munitions', 'counter-image munitions' and 'remediation battles'. Nathan Roger offers a conceptually sophisticated and empirically rich exploration of the significance of images within contemporary warfare. Not only does he encourage us to rethink the place and importance of video-wills, Abu Ghraib photographs and other 'image munitions' in the war on terrorism, he also provides us with a new theoretical vocabulary for their analysis. Image Warfare in the War on Terror will be essential reading for students of International Relations, Security Studies, Media Studies and beyond. - Dr Lee Jarvis, Senior Lecturer in International Relations and Terrorism, Swansea University, UK 'Image Warfare in the War on Terror is an important book that introduces key concepts and ideas from Visual Culture to the traditional concerns of Strategic Studies and International Relations. It stages this conversation against the backdrop of the War on Terror and shows how images work in relation to military strategy and foreign policy.' - Debbie Lisle, Senior Lecturer in International Relations and Cultural Studies, Queen's University Belfast, UK '...deserves a wider readership...he is tackling a significant arugment, and one that some in the academy and government on both sides of the Atlantic have been engaged in for many years.' - Neville Bolt, Times Higher Education.
