"One hundred thousand New Zealanders went overseas to the First World War - many, for the first time, bearing Kodak cameras. The Face of War is the first book to examine the vernacular photos of World War I taken by its New Zealand participants. In this book, Callister discusses how photography was used to capture and narrate, memorialise and observe, romanticise and bear witness to the experiences of New Zealanders at home and overseas. By 1915 cameras had become affordable and popular, and were used by soldiers themselves to picture war as well as by officials, journalists and medical staff. But photography can be used both to record a true picture and to disguise the unpalatable, particularly in times of war. Callister's discussion is the first to argue for the importance of New Zealand photography to the history of war, but also examines in depth the contradictions of war photography: as a site of remembrance and forgetting; nation and sacrifice; mourning and mythology; subjectivity and identity. The Face of War is an authoritative history of New Zealand's World War I photography and its cultural, emotional and memorial roles"--Publisher's description.

What does believing mean in the face of empire and militarization? These essays articulate the critical and liberating consciousness shared by oppressed peoples across the world, arising from a faith in the God of the oppressed, expressed in radically diverse ways, and resisting the imperialist deities of materialism (read: economic growth), racism, and militarization that falsely appear as the saviors of humanity. The authors confront these false gods--which form the modern empire--worshiped by the most dominant militarized states in the world and followed by their allied states even in the midst of a worldwide pandemic. Out of the eleven articles, two are written by critical political analysts with an anti-colonial lens while recognizing the importance of faith in resistance. The rest are written by theologians who critically reflect on their faith within the context of empire and militarization in their societies. Militarization is among the most brutal forms of oppression on the resisting peoples. The theologies that have emerged from critical reflections on their collective experiences are grounded on a material spirituality as opposed to materialistic, racist, and militaristic godlessness. This collection has emerged out of creative and transformative practices in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Pacific, and the US. The essays are divided it into four sections in recognizing some of the key features of material spirituality; indigenous, feminist and interreligious voices, and horizontal solidarity.
