From the grandly historic to the poignantly human, from battlefield violence to the gentle pleasures of peace, In Our Time captures the past 50 years of world history in more than 300 memorable photographs, many in full color. "The year's most important book of photographs".--Newsweek.
"This stirring volume of extraordinary photographs, presenting our times in all their elegance, squalor, courage, hope, betrayal, agony, sacrifice, heroism, and majesty, is as unsparing of its audience as it was unsparing of its photographers. . . . These pictures demand involvement." --William Manchester, from the text
