Don McCullin is one of the greatest photographers of conflict in our time. The book begins and ends in the Somerset landscape that surrounds McCullin's home, but the whole sequence of more than two hundred photographs encompasses a ravaged northern England, war in Cyprus, Biafra, Vietnam, Cambodia, Beirut and riots in Derry. The climax of the book is among the cannibals and tribespeople deep in the jungles of Irian Jaya, where McCullin focuses on humanity in an almost Stone Age condition.

Conceived on a scale that does justice to his extraordinary career, Don McCullin is the definitive work on the acclaimed British photographer. The book follows the chronology of McCullin’s life: from the earliest pictures that he took in Britain in the fifties, through the building of the Berlin Wall, to the cannibals and tribes people in the jungles of Irian Jaya. Along the way, McCullin shows us wars in Cyprus, Biafra, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Beirut, as well as riots in Derry and famine in Bangladesh. Collectively, McCullin’s photographs constitute one of the great documents of human conflict and its attendant grief, expressed with a visual lyricism and unswerving compassion that allow us to glimpse the unbearable. Featuring 200 duotone photos, this handsomely produced volume also includes an Introduction by Harold Evans, former Editor of THE TIMES and THE SUNDAY TIMES and author of The American Century, and an essay by Susan Sontag, distinguished novelist, essayist, and author of On Photography. Don McCullin’s previous book was India.From the Inside Flap:
