"There is much to admire in this book. It covers a range of wars that have taken place over the past few decades - Bangladesh, Kosovo, 9/11 and the the Gulf Wars. I found Icons of War and Terror extremely worthwhile. It was very readable and an intelligent analysis of complex problems. It is certainly a book that should be coupled with Susan Sontag's work and the range of other quality analyses of the current incarnation of warfare and lethal violence." - Jeff Lewis, Professor of Media and Cultural Politics at RMIT University, e-IR, December 2012
