The image makers by Ursula Kolbe( Visual )

29 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growth of mass communication provided a new understanding of ways to manipulate images and influence popular opinion, giving birth to the concept of public relations.
