12 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 882 libraries worldwide
"What place do images hold among other kinds of historical evidence? In Eyewitnessing, Peter Burke reviews graphics, photographs, films and other media from many countries and periods and examines their pragmatic uses. This profusely illustrated book surveys the opportunities and the challenges of using images to understand other times." "In a thorough and compelling defence of the importance of the visual to history, Burke argues that images should not be considered mere reflections of their time and place, but rather extensions of the social contexts in which they were produced. The author describes and evaluates the methods by which art historians have traditionally analyzed images and finds them insufficient to deal with the complexities of visual imagery." "In developing a richer mode of visual interpretation, Burke devotes much attention to religious icons and narratives as well as to propaganda posters, caricatures and maps. Eyewitnessing, also addresses the economics of images - some, such as films, are commodities in themselves, while others are created to advertise other products. Concentrating on the representation of social groups, the author explores stereotypes as well as notions of foreignness and gender. In this wide-ranging, highly accessible volume, Burke helps us to understand the promise and the pitfalls of using visual evidence in the writing of history."--BOOK JACKET.

The book concludes with an account of the convergences associated with digital communication technology, and with the phenomenon of globalization. Written by two social and cultural historians, "A Short History of the Media" is also an economic, social and cultural history, focusing on content as well as on technology and on the development of and limits to different forms of communication.
