Product description
Through a dazzling combination of memoir, history, reporting, visual culture, literature and theology, Sarah Sentilles offers an impassioned and ultimately hopeful defence of life lived by peace and principle. She tells the true stories of a conscientious objector during World War II and a former prison guard at Abu Ghraib, challenging conventional thinking about how violence is waged, witnessed and resisted – especially now, in an age of drone warfare. With echoes of Susan Sontag and Maggie Nelson, Draw Your Weapons stirs and confronts, disturbs and illuminates. A single book might not change the world, but this affecting and utterly original meditation on art and war might transform the way you see the world - and that mankes all the difference.
