Description


The Language of War: Literature and Culture in the U.S. from the Civil War through World War II By James Dawes
Publisher: Harvard University Press 2002 | 320 Pages | ISBN: 0674006488 | PDF | 1 MB



This book is a meditation on the relationship between violence and language, not only in the ways that violence impedes, corrals, or squelches speech but also in the ways the assumptions embedded in words trigger, presume, or encourage violence. The book shows the ways -- potentially -- language can challenge violence and expose the terror and silencing of war.
--Lyde Cullen Sizer (Journal of American History )

The Language of War reminded me of my first reading of Paul Fussell's The Great War and Modern Memory. Dawes's intellectual history of how language was used for 100 years in thinking and writing about war gives us the critical tools to understand his inquiry into the difficulties of meaning inherent in formulations of modern laws of war.
--Thomas Palaima (The Times Higher Education Supplement )
