From the Back Cover:

Nothing has more power to communicate destruction and despair of our time than the documentary photograph. The Tiananmen Square massacre, the Kent State shootings, the Kennedy assassination, the civil rights movement-these events have been indelibly etched in the minds of Americans through the work of photojournalists. In Truth Needs No Ally, Howard Chapnick, one of the giants of contemporary photojournalism, offers a historical, philosophical, pragmatic, and inspiring look at the profession.

About the Author:

Retired president of the Black Star Photo Agency and former monthly columnist for Popular Photography, Howard Chapnick is a fifty-year veteran of photojournalism.  He is author or editor of many books, most recently Malcolm X:  The Great Pictures.  He lives in Somers, New York.
