As another reviewer elaborated, this textbook is shallow at best; it has very little depth. If you're looking to conduct research or if you're in a graduate level class, this book is not for you.

Format: Paperback
Paul Martin Lester's Visual Communication is an expensive sad publication designed for the academic community who has no idea what the rest of the United States citizens are seeing.
A major fault I was the absence of female photographers especially from the era of the 1930s when the rest of the world had the outstanding work of Dorthea Lange and Margaret Burke-White from which to understand the devestation of that period of time.
Normally I read an entire book before I write a review for this one I did not. I read the first ten chapters and skimmed the rest then dropped the course for which it was used as a text.
