Picture This!: The Inside Story and Classic Photos of UPI Newspictures
by Walter Cronkite
Publisher's Description
Written and compiled by a veteran United Press International photographer and editor, Picture This! tells the stories behind the stories -- and how some of the most iconic and revealing news pictures of the late 20th century came to be. There are powerful photographs of the Civil Rights struggles, the Vietnam War, and great moments in sports, entertainment, and politics.

Picture This! follows the development of the wire picture services, the storied competition between smaller and scrappier UPI and its far larger competitor, Associated Press, and how UPI's 11.5 million-picture library ended up in a Pennsylvania cave, owned by Bill Gates's Corbis.
