Selected by Choice magazine as one of its outstanding books of 1993.
The Power of Photography is a seminal work of such importance that it should become mandatory reading in the fields of communications, media, photography, and sociology. Taking specific images from the history of photography. Vicki Goldberg weaves her analysis of the impact that specific images have had on society. The quality of research and Goldberg's keen perception, along with her personable writing style, combine to keep the reader interested and entranced.
Unquestionably the only book of its kind. --Choice
