Editorial Reviews

Review

Peeler is a fine writer, one who knows how to balance analysis with anecdote. Readers end up knowing the men and their work. . . Peeler pays homage to each photographer's great accomplishments and reveals the essence of their art. CHOICE Peeler's work deserves a place alongside the best historical studies in photography. He balances substantial archival research with thought-provoking image analysis, and he does it all without drowning us in a sea of jargon. JOURNAL OF AMERICAN HISTORY The Illuminating Mind is an impressive study. . . that other scholars will find tempting to cite and draw from in the future. HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY (Vol 27 No 1 Spring 2003)
