Michael Peven: "[This book features] imagery from various sources including iconic war images from Viet Nam, WWII, the Spanish Civil War, movie posters, and Carnival in Rio, while Fred Astaire and Ronald and Nancy Reagan dance in and out of the scroll. Text from the Sun Tzu's Art of War is juxtaposed over and around the images."
