In the Face of History is a collection of works by some of the greatest European photographers of the twentieth century. Capturing some of the key events in the continent's history, these images of hope and despair illuminate the currents of political and social change that shape and are shaped by individual lives.

The book contains the work of over 20 photographers, including Atget, Brassai, Vishniac, Sudek, Jonsson, Doisneau, Petersen, Mikhailov, Killip and Tillmans. Often uplifting, sometimes shocking, In the Face of History depicts a past that is fundamentally a part of our present.
