(W/A/CA) Seymour Chwast. At War with War visualizes humanity's 5*000-year-long state of conflict* chaos* and violence on a continuous timeline. Seventy pages of stark black-and-white pen-and-ink drawings and woodcuts illustrate history's most notorious battles from 3300 BCE to the present day. Interspersed are contemplations on war from historic thinkers* including excerpts from "The Art of War" by Sun Tsu* "The Complaint of Peace" by Desiderius Erasmus* and "The State" by Randolph Bourne. Searing and sardonic* balancing anger and despair with wit and humanity* these raw illustrations convey the power of war in human life.
