An unflinching look at the civil war in El Salvador and its attendant brutalities. Harry Mattison, Susan Meiselas, and Fae Rubenstein have edited the work of 30 photographers into a powerful document of a country torn between an oppressive government and a fierce resistance. In addition to numerous images of combat and its grisly aftermath, the effects of the war on the lives of El Salvador's people, rich and poor, are also chronicled.
Some wear to edges; lower right corner of front wrapper creased and very slightly torn; Minor bumping of same corner; some soiling to cover page; otherwise Very Good.
