More Description

More than 150 of the Associated Press' greatest photographs, including many Pulitzer Prize winners, are brought together in this moving and historic record of the major events and personalities of the 20th century. From world-famous images such as the American flag rising over Iwo Jima and a young Cassius Clay exultant over a prostrate Sonny Liston to gripping up-to-the-minute news photos, the reader comes face-to-face with the significant issues and personal achievements of the modern age.

Celebrating its 150th anniversary in 1998, the AP is the world's foremost news organization; it, more than any other source, is dedicated to shaping the news that people see, hear, and read everyday. When an AP photographer was killed in Somalia in 1993, 12 others jumped to take his place. "What kind of organization can ask that of a person, to permit the risking of life for something as transitory as a news story?" asks Peter Arnett, who won a Pulitzer Prize for reporting on Vietnam for the AP. The answer: one with a clear and idealistic commitment to its mission.
