Many books have shown how truth is the first casualty of war but this is the first to analyse exactly how pro-war narratives are constructed and normalised.Brian Rappert details the upside-down world of war in which revelation conceals, knowledge fosters uncertainty, and transparency obscures.

He looks at government spin during recent wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya where officials manoeuvre between circulating and withholding information.Examining how organised violence is justified, How to Look Good in A War draws on experiences from recent controversy to consider how ignorance about the operation of war is produced and how concerned individuals and groups can intervene to make a difference.
