Description - Matters of Conflict by Nicholas J. Saunders

This book looks at the vast and varied material legacy of the First World War. From trench art and postcards to prosthetic limbs, unexploded ordinance and war memorials, it examines the continuing and constantly changing significance of the conflict through the things it left behind. The diverse contributions span anthropology, archaeology, cultural history, museology and art history, bringing conceptual unity and coherence to a previously compartmentalized subject. Matters of Conflict sets a new agenda for the study of the First World War and ultimately of all twentieth-century conflict.
