New fully revised with new section on war memorials.

The annual Remembrance Day service and the many war memorials that are found in almost every city, town and village throughout Britain serve several functions, one of which is that they reinforce the message that sees war as 'natural' in western culture. Newly revised and updated Remembering War challenges this idea, and, in doing so, provides significant material with which the general reader and student alike can examine the role of the media in the process. A new section looks at the burgeoning growth of war memorial both here and in Europe. Notes for teachers and students are available separately.
