Pictures of the Times: A Century of Photography from the New York Times
by Peter Galassi
Publisher's Description
This anthology briges the gap between news and history, revealing the rich cultural legacy carved out by one of this country's finest newspapers. It presents images that have been burned into U.S. history as if they were the events themselves. But it is only within the broader outline of the Twentieth Century that we see Lee Harvey Oswald grimacing from Jack Ruby's bullet. Pictures examines the images that a society uses to think about itself: New Yorkers on a hot day and Mike Tyson on the rise.
