Not a paperback edition - just a cheap photocopy: don't buy! May 9 2014
By Ipsaruinadocet - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The paperback edition is not a printed edition: it is an extremely cheap reprint, probably from a PDF, with a disastrous loss of quality of all illustrations: they are very heavy in contrast, show smudges, hazing and streaks; in many cases, you can hardly see what is represented in the images.

What an eye opener Nov. 2 2009
By Book Lover - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A careful and thorough look at the American people, our history and psyche, and how we memorialize the significant events of our National adventure. Mr. Savage beautifully and remarkably blends the art, politics, and public rememberence of what is surely our most significant struggle as a nation - defeating slavery.
