Mond?jar's work is a companion to an exhibit of the same name that opened at the C!rculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid in December 1999 and is still on tour in Europe and the United States. This single-volume history is the culmination of editor/curator Mond?jar's multivolume study of photography and Spanish society. As with Mexican Suite, this work starts with the beginnings of photography in Europe and its rapid spread and influence, covered in Part 1 (1839-1900). Part 2 (1900-39) shows more signs of political influence, and Part 3 encompasses everything from the war years through the Documentary Revival of the 1960s, to abstracts and nudes in the 1990s. Again, the images are well chosen, spanning portraits of the wealthy and records of the harsh conditions of laborers; biblical images, such as an erotic Salome, and stylized saints; and landscapes, fashion shots, and grisly scenes from the Spanish Civil War. Both books are scholarly, and both are recommended for academic and regional libraries and all significant photography collections. Joseph Hewgley, Nashville P.L.
