Publisher Comments:

During the final, bloody days of South African apartheid, four remarkable young men — photographers, friends, and rivals — banded together.

Review:

"[T]his grippingly candid trip into 'the dead zones' of war journalism will thrill, shock and finally move you." Johanna McGeary, chief foreign correspondent for Time Magazine

Review:

"The Bang-Bang Club succeeds where other, more self-important histories of the conflict in South Africa have failed." Philadelphia City Paper

Review:

"To read this book is to feel the early morning wake up calls, the menace of a crowd getting ready to kill, the shame that can go with taking a prize-wining photograph of human misery. Parts of it will haunt you." New York Times

Review:

"The book's 40 photographs offer stark illustrations of the issues, especially the question of the responsibility of the journalist to intervene in order to help rather than merely to profit." Library Journal
