"Pictures Have Now Become a Necessity": The Use of Images in American History Textbooks.
Masur, Louis P.
Journal of American History, v84 n4 p1409-24 Mar 1998
Observes that U.S. history textbooks include vast numbers of illustrations, but that authors and publishers seldom integrate the pictures with the historical narrative. Advises images be incorporated into lessons to examine the events illustrated, why the picture was created, how it was received, and what it meant to contemporaries. (DSK)
