Salgados Opus Magnum An die Ränder unserer Welt - ein monumentales Bildwerk über die letzten Paradiese der Erde Anders als die Collector's Edition, die als großformatiges Portfolio ohne strenge thematische Gliederung erscheint, zeigt die Trade Edition eine abweichende Auswahl an Bildern, geografisch geordnet in fünf Kapiteln: Im Süden des Planeten, Zufluchtsorte, Afrika, Nördliche Weiten, Amazonien und Panatal. Zwar wurden beide Bücher aus derselben Werkgruppe zusammengestellt, in ihrer Herangehensweise unterscheiden sie sich jedoch radikal voneinander. Aber natürlich sind beide Publikationen faszinierende Dokumente eines fotografischen Abenteuers, das es in diesen Dimensionen noch nie gegeben hat: Salgados Genesis-Projekt.

This book introduces a new research agenda for visual peace research, providing a political analysis of the relationship between visual representations and the politics of violence nationally and internationally. Using a range of genres, from photography to painting, it elaborates on how people can become agents of their own image.
This study thinks with photography about peace. It asks how photography can represent peace, and how such representation can contribute to peace. The book offers an original critique of the almost exclusive focus on violence in recent work on visual culture and presents a completely new research agenda within the overall framework of visual peace research. Critically engaging with both photojournalism and art photography in light of peace theories, it looks for visual representations or anticipations of peace – peace or peace as a potentiality – in the work of selected photographers including Robert Capa and Richard Mosse, thus reinterpreting photography from the Spanish Civil War to current anti-migration politics in Europe. The book argues that peace photography is episodic, culturally specific, process-oriented and considerate of both the past and the future.

Many seek to "fix" Africa - economists, experts, politicians, gurus, cognoscenti and glitterati. But the continent conceals multiple secrets, including the Holy Grail: explanations of its saga over the previous centuries. Africa's Future tells the tale of Africa's economic evolution, revealing unique prisms for understanding the continent's panoramic story, one of triumph over the lasting influences of nature and multiple political tragedies. Modern Africa developed diverse economic pathways to betterment - yet survivalist economies litter the landscape. Its paradox of "subsistence with many faces" coexists amidst the tiny middle class, growing rich, and many more poor expected in the future. Clarke provides fresh and challenging insights into Africa's economies and future, offering seasoned views on a continent of unlocked potential which has witnessed many false dawns. Not "poor" but poorly managed, Africa holds greater promise, its destiny revealed by its history.
