Publisher's description: Published in conjunction with a major exhibition, Aftermath: The Fallout of War -- America and the Middle East captures the response of artists to the impact of war on people and their environments. Writers, poets, and photographers band together to transform destruction into enlightenment, aggression into love, and scars into hope. The collection of photographs, essays, and poems offers an immersion in the human costs of war, revealing the toll war takes on individuals and families in the United States and the Middle East. There are no flags or guns here, only the shared survival tactics of people across numerous borders. The images are at times disturbing and uncomfortable, but they are also powerful and intimate. Carol McCusker, the Harn Museum of Art's curator of photography, organized the exhibition that is a companion to this volume. The artists -- Lynsey Addario, Jananne Al-Ani, Stephen Dupont, Jennifer Karady, Gloriann Liu, Ben Lowy, Rania Matar, Eman Mohammed, Simon Norfolk, Farah Nosh, Suzanne Opton, and Michal Rovner -- are active in the United States, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and Palestine.
