"War Is Beautiful" Book Reading & Discussion With Author David Shields says
Seattle author, David Shields returns to Couth Buzzard to discuss his latest book, “War is Beautiful: The New York Times Pictorial Guide to the Glamour of Armed Conflict.” Shields analyzed over a decade’s worth of front-page war photographs from The New York Times and came to a shocking conclusion: the photo-editing process of the “paper of record,” by way of pretty, heroic, and lavishly aesthetic image selection, pulls the wool over the eyes of its readers; Shields forces us to face not only the the media's complicity in dubious and catastrophic military campaigns but our own as well. Free.
