Prague Invasion 1968 by Josef Koudelka

Czech photographer Josef Koudelka was centre stage with his camera when the Soviet tanks rolled into Prague in 1968, photographing mass demonstrations and the confrontations between protestors and invading soldiers. Smuggled out of Czechoslovakia soon after the invasion, Koudelka's stunning black-and-white pictures of the citizens of Prague swarming the streets as tanks rumble towards them were widely published in theWest, and remain the definitive images of those tumultuous days.

Re-released Book

RFK Funeral Train by Paul Fusco

In tribute to Robert F. Kennedy's raw empathy, his determination to make our lives better, and his insistence that the government is answerable to all - black and white, rich and poor - hundreds of thousands of people stood patiently in the searing heat on June 8th, 1968 to watch his funeral train travel slowly from New York to Washington, D.C., just as Abraham Lincoln's had, 103 years before. Paul Fusco photographed the silent, mourning crowds from the passing train. The result, brought to light over thirty-years later, is a moving snapshot of America at a crucial moment of trauma and transition.

A revised and extended edition of the 2000 publication.
