Summary "The Body at Risk explores the ways that photojournalists and social documentarians have visualized the human subject as a site of both good and ill health. Author Carol Squiers brings together ten significant groups of photographs made over the last one hundred years that show how bodies have been affected by various forces, from labor to war, and how those forces have affected human health."--BOOK JACKET
