BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Harry Turtledove's The War that Came Early: West and East. A stroke of the pen and history is changed. In 1938, British prime minister Neville Chamberlain, determined to avoid war, signed the Munich Accord, ceding part of Czechoslovakia to Hitler. But the following spring, Hitler snatched the rest of that country, and England, after a fatal act of appeasement, was fighting a war for which it was not prepared. Now, in this thrilling alternate history, another scenario is played out: What if Chamberlain had not signed the accord? In this action-packed chronicle of the war that might have been, Harry Turtledove uses dozens of points of view to tell the story: from American marines serving in Japanese-occupied China and ragtag volunteers fighting in the Abraham Lincoln Battalion in Spain to an American woman desperately trying to escape Nazi-occupied territory—and witnessing the war from within the belly of the beast. A tale of powerful leaders and ordinary people, at once brilliantly imaginative and hugely entertaining, Hitler’s War captures the beginning of a very different World War II—with a very different fate for our world today.

Sightwalk, Gueorgui Pinkhassov's first book, is far more than just a book of photographs. It is a beautiful object and an extraordinary piece of design in its own right: a modernist Japanese photo album created from Oriental fabrics and papers, and bound by hand. Within, the sense of innovation and artistry is communicated through the photographs that explore the complex ways in which singular details such as plays of light and reflections can capture a spirit and shape an atmosphere. In these images, settings sometimes no longer make clear spatial or thematic sense. Rather, just like the artist's accompanying poetic texts that bring them to life, the pictures become a play on our perceptions.

Open Wound

The collapse of Russian communism in 1991 resounded to the shudder of an empire. Soviet imperialism and empiricism was dead and lands, nations, and peoples would henceforth be free from the tyranny of the communist diktat. But it also sounded the death knell of a small, impoverished, and forgotten land-locked state in the Caucasus which had the misfortune to be of geopolitical importance. Stanley Greene's photographs in Open Wound are so powerful as to make Chechnya our responsibility. He is unashamed to use guilt, with his painter's eye, to relate the deeds of men in Chechnya to our own conduct.

New York in Color presents the best color photography of New York over the last century. From its iconic landmarks like Times Square and Coney Island to the visual poetry of its streets and skyline, New York presents an ever-changing visual collage best seen in color. Here, neon lights define the spirit of the night, a young Bob Dylan lingers in the snows of Greenwich Village, subway trains are rolling murals, and New Yorkers of every era become dramatic actors on the world’s greatest stage. Presenting work—much of it unknown—by major photographers, including such masters as André Kertész, William Klein, Helen Levitt, and Joel Meyerowitz, New York in Color is destined to be a classic photographic survey of the world’s most visually vibrant city. Praise for New York in Color: “Even in black-and-white, New York’s colors come through. They do so more vividly in New York in Color, a stunning, color-only anthology.” —New York Times “Shamis . . . is to be praised not only for his selections but also for the fine sequencing—we see a picture of Coney Island circa 1902, for instance, right before another circa 1956—that adds to our appreciation of the individual images.” —William Meyers, Wall Street Journal “The two hundred images represent a visual conversation about New York, one that is inflected with everything from soft, pastel hues to jolting reds and yellows. There is grit and grace, lightness and laughter. And, yes, tragedy—a selection of images near the end is devoted to the World Trade Center.” —New York Times Lens Blog “Offer[s] a rare glimpse of colorful city life. . . . Flipping through the book shows that New York City life was never gray” —New York Post “A fantastic collection and the perfect gift book for anyone who loves the city or fine photography.” —Connecticut Post “There’s no shortage of iconic black-and-white New York images. What you may be less familiar with, however, is the city’s rich history of color photography. This history is the subject of curator Bob Shamis’s stunning new coffee-table book, New York in Color, which is filled with some two hundred vibrant photos from the past hundred years.” —PureWow.com

A Russian Journal

Steinbeck and Capa’s account of their journey through Cold War Russia is a classic piece of reportage and travel writing. Just after the Iron Curtain fell on Eastern Europe, Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Steinbeck and acclaimed war photographer Robert Capa ventured into the Soviet Union to report for the New York Herald Tribune. This rare opportunity took the famous travelers not only to Moscow and Stalingrad – now Volgograd – but through the countryside of the Ukraine and the Caucasus. Hailed by the New York Times as "superb" when it first appeared in 1948, A Russian Journal is the distillation of their journey and remains a remarkable memoir and unique historical document. What they saw and movingly recorded in words and on film was what Steinbeck called "the great other side there … the private life of the Russian people." Unlike other Western reporting about Russia at the time, A Russian Journal is free of ideological obsessions. Rather, Steinbeck and Capa recorded the grim realities of factory workers, government clerks, and peasants, as they emerged from the rubble of World War II—represented here in Capa’s stirring photographs alongside Steinbeck’s masterful prose. Through it all, we are given intimate glimpses of two artists at the height of their powers, answering their need to document human struggle. This edition features an introduction by Steinbeck scholar Susan Shillinglaw. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Understanding Photobooks is a user-friendly guide to engaging with the photographic book— or, as it is widely known, the photobook. Despite its importance as a central medium in which many photographers showcase their work today, there is surprisingly little information on the mechanics of the photobook: what exactly it does and how it does it. Written for makers and artists, this book will help you develop a better understanding of the images, concept, sequence, design, and production of the photobook. With an awareness of the connections between these elements, you’ll be able to evaluate photobooks more clearly and easily, ultimately allowing for a deeper and more rewarding experience of the work.

"My photographs are both real and surreal," Charles Harbutt writes of this book, containing some 120 examples of his work. "For a while I called them superbanalisms. I don't think of this book as a portfolio of my best work, but rather as an integrated set of photographs that express where I have been psychologically, emotionally, physically. In a way it is Bloom walking the world. The loneliness, alienation, and fears, the lusts and sexual sorrows, the difficulties of sustaining emotional relationships. The damage people do to each other and the delight they can and do give one another. Throughout the desire to break free. At the same time it is about what is specifically photographic about photography...." Harbutt's art was developed within the documentary tradition that has nurtured such other Magnum photographers as Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and Werner Bischof. Nevertheless, in the images caught and fixed so sharply here, Harbutt transcends this tradition, not by denying it, but by bridging the gap between the abstract or "pure" photograph and the documentary statement. Although the book does not follow the too-prevalent narrative documentary pattern in which visual statements are in part determined by a preconceived verbal scenario, still the progression of the images reveals consistencies of theme and structure that are appropriate to a genuine book, as opposed to an exhibit of photographs unrelated except by quality that is reproduced in book format. The book is absolutely "literate" in terms of the photographic medium itself: formal values and content are so totally fused that one is able to "read" it many times and find deeper meanings each time. The subject matter Harbutt looks at and into is common to the experience of us all-but he sees it in an intensely uncommon, personal way, and in turn he allows us to share in his vision. The first three sections of the book reveal the World, the Flesh, and the Devil. "The World" brings the inanimate to life-automobiles and buses and buildings are seen largely in isolation from their human context and assume a reality and animation all their own. "The Flesh" is a revelation of pure humanity-children are caught in the act of growing up; adults are shown leaving clues to the meaning of their groping lives. "The Devil" is a nighttown of images of evil-religious incantations, sideshow bacchanals, dry bones in a coffin. In a final section, Harbutt-Bloom returns from his odyssey, bringing his travelog full circle. In "Home," he lovingly observes wooden chairs waiting in a garden, a boat in a bathtub, a curtain blowing in an upstairs window, a bird, a dog, a child at play, a family relaxing together under the warm rays of the sun.... Harbutt's work has appeared in all major international magazines and has been exhibited throughout the world.

The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand

Garry Winogrand—along with Diane Arbus and Lee Friedlander—was one of the most important photographers of the 1960s and 1970s, as well as one of the world’s foremost street photographers. Award-winning writer Geoff Dyer has admired Winogrand’s work for many years. Modeled on John Szarkowski’s classic book Atget, The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand is a masterfully curated selection of one hundred photographs from the Winogrand archive at the Center for Creative Photography, with each image accompanied by an original essay. Dyer takes the viewer/reader on a wildly original journey through both iconic and unseen images from the archive, including eighteen previously unpublished color photographs. The book encompasses most of Winogrand’s themes and subjects and remains broadly faithful to the chronological and geographical facts of his life, but Dyer’s responses to the photographs are unorthodox, eye-opening, and often hilarious. This inimitable combination of photographer and writer, images and text, itself offers what Dyer claims for Winogrand’s photography—an education in seeing.

When it comes to foreign visitors or artists, North Korea must be the most restrictive country in the world. Nevertheless, Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer managed to cross the entire country in 42 days, divided into three journeys. In his latest book, Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer points his lens at North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the last communist state in the world from an ideological, political and cultural perspective. De Keyzer is one of very few photographers who got almost-unlimited access to the country. He photographed more than 200 different locations, many of which had never been captured on camera before. The 250 photos that form his 'Grand Tour' - taken on marches, at the shooting range, in the subway and in family homes - are a testament to this country's uniqueness.
