Island Encounters.
Black and White Memories of the Pacific War.


Text by Lamont Lindstrom and Geoffrey M. White.
Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington, DC, 1990. 240 pp., 176 black and white photographs, 8½x11".

Just as television was the medium of the Vietnam War, still photography--official and otherwise--created a record of World War II. In this fascinating work of historical anthropology, Lamont Lindstrom and Geoffrey M. White combine photographs taken in the South Pacific by American and Japanese soldiers, photojournalists, and official military photographers with oral histories--mostly those of islanders--to explore the impact of the war on the island cultures. A fine example of how photographs are used as source material for cultural analysis.
