PICTURING THE SOUTH: 1860 to the Present edited by Ellen Dugan (Chronicle Books: $29.95, 223 pp., paperback original). The catalog from an exhibit at the High Museum in Atlanta organized in collaboration with the Atlanta Committee for the Olympics Games Cultural Olympiad, "Picturing the South," uses nearly 200 photographs to trace 135 years of regional history.

Although the images of slavery are wrenching, the most poignant photographs were taken at the height of the civil rights movement, including a very young and vulnerable-looking Martin Luther King Jr.
