This book has 350 photographs from the National Geographic Society and Getty Images that chronicle the historical impact of 100 events that changed the world. Poignant, well-known images and previously unpublished photographs capture the emotion of tragedies and human achievements that shaped history. The iconic photograph of John F. Kennedy Jr. saluting his father's casket and an image of commuters engrossed in newspapers with the headline, "PRESIDENT SHOT DEAD," depict the emotion of the 35th president's assassination. Pictures of Buzz Aldrin's footprint in the lunar soil, as captured by Neil Armstrong's camera, help tell the story of the Apollo 11 mission, and a shot of Jesse Owens winning the 100-meter dash recalls his symbolic Olympic victory in Nazi Germany. The images are accompanied by text and first-person accounts that analyze each momentous event. Other issues covered include the September 11th terrorist attacks, Elvis Presley's appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, and more. Hardcover; 319 pages.
