Magnum Revolution

by Jon Lee Anderson

Book review

The history of revolution is as old as humanity; yet it is only since the invention of photography that we have been able to discern the realities of these conflicts from the distance of time. Starting with the Algerian uprising in 1954 and culminating with the most recent triumphs and tragedies of the "Arab Spring," this book brings together hundreds of colour and black and white images that depict historic events from a human perspective. Iconic images from revolutions in Prague, Nicaragua, Tiananmen Square, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, Lebanon, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and other locations are introduced in double-page spreads, featuring the images of Magnum photographers such as Raymond Depardon, Burt Glinn, Rene Burri, Josef Koudelka, Susan Meiselas, and many more. Introduced by New Yorker journalist Jon Lee Anderson, and featuring interviews by Paul Watson, this uplifting and important book offers, for the first time, a collective understanding of the universal dream of freedom and the inevitability of change.
