Abstract

The author introduces three articles published in this issue. The articles were written by Melanie Richter-Montpetit, Liz Philipose and Laura Sjoberg. Each discusses the atrocities committed by U.S. military personnel at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq in 2003 and 2004. The events are examined in the context of the photographs taken by U.S. Army Reserve guards and the global commentary that was generated to explain those photographs, especially those of U.S. Army Reserve clerk Lynndie R. England.
