From the Back Cover:

Photography Theory in Historical Perspective: Case Studies from Contemporary Art aims to contribute to the understanding of the multifaceted and complex character of the photographic medium by dealing with various case studies selected from photographic practices in contemporary art, discussed in the context of views and theories of photography from its inception.

Five thematic fields are covered: photography compared to painting; photography as time-based art (compared to film and performance); photography’s relation to virtual places and spatial art; photography as visual tool for social critique; and photography as self-reflective medium. These fields are connected to issues of representation, time, place, function, and metapicture.
