Abstract

The book begins with the experience of Zlatko Dizdarević, editor of the leading wartime newspaper in Sarajevo, Bosnia’s capital, as well as Ivana Maček’s wartime ethnography of the capital’s siege. They serve as cases of moral injury that the work returns to in each chapter, creating a narrative thread throughout. The introduction presents an argument for virtue language, the limitations of key anthropologies of violence and subjectivity, and presents the particular strengths of Murdoch’s use of virtue language for speaking about and understanding moral injury.
