case of this study, that ground is generous. The book's attention to audience through the use of "we" and "I" invites a more thorough treatment of actual historical readers and audience members. Its obvious awareness of the significance of imagery--photography, print, and page embellishment--to the average American's understanding of the war encourages more work on the specific intersection of visual and textual culture during this period. Moreover, Barrett's careful consideration of formal elements lays the groundwork for more specific thematic readings of this canon. The foundation that Barrett offers not only provides a much-needed overview of the field but will, I hope, serve as inspiration for more work in this area for years to come.
