5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent display of photojournalistic imagery., October 13, 1997
This book is a "must-have" for anyone who has even the most remote interest in photojournalism. Every time you turn the page of this book, you will enter a new era and meet a new person or feel a new experience...and surely you will envy the talent and experience of the photographers who bring it all to print.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book of Magnum porportions!, June 23, 2001

If you are into photojournalistic photography, then you have undoubtedly heard of Magnum. This book is for you if you care about Magnum and are interested in seeing the work of prominent Magnum photographers and reading a bit about the history of Magnum and photography in general.
The book is quite big and heavy. This makes it great to display on a coffee table and to view the powerful photographs, but not so easy to read the 3 essays. Also, the book only covers up to the mid to late 80's. It should be updated to include the Magnum photographers of the 90s. That said, it's is still packed with important and inspiring work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing photography, July 23, 2011
By 
Evan the Dweezil (A Place-Sort Of, Montana) - See all my reviews
This book is a great collection of some hands-down stunning photography. The copy may as well not be there as it almost detracts from the impact of the art the book is presenting. While it feels a bit outdated with 1988 as the latest examples shown, In Our Time, is still a neat book to look at.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good book if you are interseted in Magnum, September 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Right out of the gate I would tell you that this is an ego trip for Magnum! They spend a lot of time telling you just how great Magnum was. Well, I guess they were, but it does wear a bit after several pages of it. Having said that there is biographical information about many of the "great" photographers of the 20th century, and as you read an look at the images you will see a good number of the iconic images of the time. I have not yet decided if I will keep this book or pass it on to another highly interested photographer...
