Century: One Hundred Years of Human Progress, Regression, Suffering and Hope.
Conceived and Edited by Bruce Bernard. Phaidon, 2002.

This interesting collection of images from the 20th Century focuses on assassinations, labour unrest and protest, politics, and war. There are a few artists, fewer scientists, some athletes, models, performers. Great Britain and the United States are featured. Even though some work by Canadians makes the cut (Superman, In the Heat of the Night), no Canadians or references to Canada are to be found here.
