MEDIA REVIEWS


"The strongest aspect of this book is the broad range of topics and photos the author presents. There seems to be something for everyone here. It is geographically and historically diverse, and it gives the reader a contextual history of photography itself." - Craig Hendricks, Long Beach City College




"The author has a wide range of historical knowledge and his discussion of particular photos from diverse time periods and cultures makes this book usable for a wide variety of classes." - Carolyn Eisenberg, Hofstra University




"Insights into American History opens conversations for students of history and photography, no matter what their level of literacy and preparation-and helps them understand the role of the photograph in documenting and explicating the American past." - Maureen Murphy Nutting, North Seattle Community College
