"Mr. Ritchin brings to his discussion a passionate interest in the social role of photography--which, he says, should challenge our easy assumptions about the world by reflecting its complexity and richness."--"The New York Times Sunday Book Review"
..."Should be read by anyone concerned with how governments and the news media can manipulate information that people accept as truth."--"The Los Angeles Times"
