Summary
In Draw Your Weapons, Sarah Sentilles offers an impassioned defence of life lived by peace and principle. Through a dazzling combination of memoir, history, reporting, visual culture, literature and theology, Sentilles tells the true stories of a conscientious objector during World War II and a former prison guard at Abu Ghraib. In the process she challenges conventional thinking about how violence is waged, witnessed and resisted. Draw Your Weapons stirs and confronts, disturbs and illuminates. A single book might not change the world, but this utterly original meditation on art and war might transform the way you see the world-and that makes all the difference
Summary
Explores the lives of a conscientious objector during World War II and a young soldier who was stationed at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, both of whom create art as a response to war, in an exploration of the way art impacts us and how it can be a non-violent source of healing, redemption and self-expression
