“Photographs have proved tricky sources for historians. Even experienced investigators have had difficulty using photographic materials as a means for uncovering new aspects of past societies; therefore, those of us who train young historians have felt the need for a text that illustrated the ways photographs can yield such insights. Robert Levine’s Images of History supplies this need better than any book I know.”—William R. Taylor — N/A
“Who was photographed, who was the photographer, what was photographed, why was the photograph taken in the first place? These are some of the questions asked by the author of Images of History. The book proves not only to be a history of photography, but also a social history of Latin America. . . . The photographs’ reproductions are excellent. A worthy addition to your library.”—John Kerr, Camera Canada — N/A
