479 pp., more than 50 photos, abut 130 in color. DJ taped along top edge and heavily chipped. Slight fading of red cloth along edges, end pages have foxed shadow from dj flap. Text block clean, no markings or writing. Binding firm. A wondeerful anthology of photojournalism from the 1930s to the 1960s in news hotspots around the world. Plus Duncan's colorful, candid memoir of how the shots were made and his often stormy interaction with editors and publishers. An especially interesting account centered on Life's editorial judgment on photos Duncan submitted showing the influx of Jews into post-war Palestine. Duncan complained the article was given a pro-Jewish slant, leaving him persona non grata with the Arabs. Life Editor Wilson Hicks replied, in essence, "We'll do Arab stories later."
