InNo Caption Needed, Robert Hariman and John Louis Lucaites provide the definitive study of the iconic photograph as a dynamic form of public art. Their critical analyses of nine individual icons explore the photographs themselves and their subsequent circulation through an astonishing array of media, including stamps, posters, billboards, editorial cartoons, TV shows, Web pages, tattoos, and more. Iconic images are revealed as models of visual eloquence, signposts for collective memory, means of persuasion across the political spectrum, and a crucial resource for critical reflection.
Arguing against the conventional belief that visual images short-circuit rational deliberation and radical critique, Hariman and Lucaites make a bold case for the value of visual imagery in a liberal-democratic society.No Caption Neededis a compelling demonstration of photojournalism’s vital contribution to public life.

Robert Harimanis professor of communication at Northwestern University and the author ofPolitical Style: The Artistry of Power.John Louis Lucaitesis professor of communication and culture at Indiana University. He is coauthor ofCrafting Equality: America’s Anglo-African World.
