We Shot the War

Editor Lisa Nguyen explores the legacy of Overseas Weekly, a muckraking military tabloid that covered the Vietnam War from 1966 to 1972 and earned a reputation as “the least popular publication at the Pentagon.” With striking photographs and personal essays, We Shot the War brings viewers behind the viewfinders of photojournalists who covered the conflict in Southeast Asia.

Zhivago's Secret Journey

Paolo Mancosu continues an investigation he began in his 2013 book Inside the Zhivago Storm, which the New York Review of Books described as "a tour de force of literary detection worthy of a scholarly Sherlock Holmes." In this book, Mancosu extends his detective work by reconstructing the network of contacts that helped Pasternak smuggle the typescripts of Doctor Zhivago outside the Soviet Union and following the vicissitudes of the typescripts when they arrived in the West. Drawing from a rich trove of archival documents, Mancosu details events that were treated as top secret by all those involved, vividly recounting the history of the publication of Pasternak’s epic work with all its human and political ramifications.
