About the Author:

C.D.B. Bryan is the author of Abrams' National Air and Space Museum and the acclaimed Friendly Fire, among other nonfiction books, novels, and countless magazine articles.

From Library Journal:

Bryan ( Friendly Fire and The National Air and Space Museum ) has produced a handsome book, based on the National Geographic Society's archives, celebrating the centennial of the Society. Magnificent photographs complement the text in telling the story of the institution, its leaders, and its journal, National Geographic . Bryan also addresses the issue of the National Geographic' s coverage of conflicts and wars, which Howard S. Abramson criticized in his National Geographic: behind America's lens on the world (LJ 3/1/87). Bryan has done an admirable job of presenting such a wealth of material. This should attract a wide audience, from scholars to laypersons. Joan W. Gartland, Detroit
