For the general reader it is a classic collection of news photographs fascinating in their own right.
For the professional and the student it remains an unrivalled study of photo-journalism, a complete analysis of how photographs are taken, selected and edited for newspapers and magazines.
As the former editor of the SUNDAY TIMES and THE TIMES, Harold Evans is uniquely qualified to take the reader behind the images that the press provide.
Many celebrated photographers were interviewed for the book, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Snowdon, Bert Hardy, Bill Brandt, Don McCullin, and Eugene Smith.
Many more have acclaimed it - including Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon and Arnold Newman.
