Carlebach, author of The Origins of Photojournalism, returns with an in-depth examination of photojournalism's development in America. His story begins with the battle between Pulitzer and Hearst, the barons of yellow journalism. From there he chronicles Jacob Riis and the muckrakers, WWI censorship and its lasting effects, and the advent of the tabloid and documentary traditions.
