From the Back Cover:

The first of its kind, Insights into American History shows students how to "read" and analyze over 140 photographs—both famous and uncelebrated—as important documentary sources. Using a case study approach, the text provides numerous opportunities for teachers and discussion leaders to challenge students to think about photographs as visual history.
