This highly regarded survey by Rosenblum (A History of Women Photographers) is a standard college text and important reference for the history of photography, distinguished by its international scope. Since its original 1984 publication, it has been translated into French, Japanese, Polish, and Chinese. This update to the third edition, published a decade ago, largely retains the text, organization, and 800-plus mostly black-and-white illustrations of the earlier editions. But more attention is paid to the impact of the Internet and globalization on marketing photography as well as to technological advances like the cell phone. A new chapter on contemporary photographers represents the work of Lara Baladi, M. Couturiér, Lalla Essaydi, Paolo Pellegrin, Thomas Struth, and more. The index, bibliography, glossary, and time line provide additional reference value. Larger public and all academic libraries should have at least one recent edition of this essential work.
