Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ. Leans slightly otherwise a very well presented copy.

The Pulitzer Prize photographs have borne witness to courage, as evidenced in Joe Rosenthal's moving image of American Gls raising the nation's flag on Iwo Jima; national shock, as in Bob Jackson's photograph of Jack Ruby shooting Lee Harvey Oswald; compassion, as seen in Nick Ut's moving image of a young Vietnamese girl, her body burned with napalm, fleeing her devastated village; and to an appeal to conscience, as in Kevin Carter's heartbreaking photograph of a starving Sudanese child being trailed by a vulture. The Pulitzer Prize photographs capture moments of joy, moments of terror, and moments of introspection. Particularly with regard to the images from World War II and Vietnam, these images have become icons of our shared consciousness.
