Reading National Geographic
by Catherine A. Lutz
Publisher's Description
For decades National Geographic has influenced our perception of the culture and peoples of the world. This new book provides an inside look at this American "institution," showing how images and text are selected and edited, and how the magazine reflects much about our own culture. Through a close examination of the 600 photographs, the authors also look at "issues of race, gender, privilege, progress, and modernity through an analysis of the way such things as color, pose, framing, and vantage point are used in representations of non-Western peoples.
