From Publishers Weekly 
Globe-trotting French photojournalist Riboud combines an unerring feel for pictorial composition, learned from his mentor Cartier-Bresson, with a sense of mission as witness to social injustice. This retrospective survey offers devastating images: a Chinese couple confronts four interrogators at a divorce hearing, as a picture of Mao stares down from the wall; a woman in the 1967 March for Peace on the Pentagon clutches a flower as she is challenged by soldiers with bayonets; King Faisal's bodyguard slouches in a palace, semiautomatic at his side. Riboud's work has appeared in Life and Time, yet his detached travelogues transcend journalism. In his portraits of bathers in icy Moscow waters, a village hairdresser in Nigeria, peasant women in Khomeini's Iran and scenes from Ankara to Dubrovnik, he proves himself a citizen of the world.

Book Description 
"Riboud may be the most accomplished photographer of his generation." -Village Voice  
Offering probing pictures of the postwar world, this reissue brings back into print Abrams' outstand- ing retrospective of the work of famed French photojournalist Marc Riboud. From his first photo in Life magazine, of a worker painting the Eiffel Tower, to fascinating shots taken in China, Vietnam, the Middle East, and other world hot spots, these images are remarkable for their elegance of composition and tough-minded skepticism. They are-as French critic Claude Roy says in his introduction-"right on target and reverberate long after the initial shock has worn off." Riboud himself has provided a brief new introductory note and an updated chronology.
