Item description for Jordan Crandall: Under Fire 2 (v. 2) by Thomas Keenan, Ryan Bishop, Benjamin Bratton, David Campbell, James Der Derian, Madelaine Drohan, Paul Edwards & Bracha Lichtenberg Ettinger...
Under Fire 2 is the second collection edited by Jordan Crandall in an ongoing project that explores the organization and representation of armed conflict. Emerging from online dialogues among a group of artists, theorists, scientists, critics, activists, and journalists during three months of 2004 and reorganized thematically, the discussions in Under Fire 2 aim to offer new insights into symptomatic violence. The book covers issues such as the privatization of the military and the contributions of commercial and independent news media, as well as representations from artistic, literary, and popular entertainment sources, to our cultural perception of conflict. Rather than relying on discourses based on Western conceptions of modernity, the project is dedicated to opening up new historical perspectives, exploring the potential of Islamist points of view as sources of critical and political debate. Edited by Jordan Crandall. Essays by James Der Derian, Madelaine Drohan, Paul Edwards, Joy Garnett, Salwa Ghaly, Stephen Graham, Chris Gray, Anahid Kassabian, Thomas Keenan, Mary Keller, Bracha Lichtenberg Ettinger, Saba Mahmood and Antonio Monegal. Paperback, 6.75 x 9.5 in./112 pgs / 18 color.
