Parr has selected diverse books which each deal with the subject of protest in quite different ways.

From the documentation of various protest movements to the actual book being a form of protest, all these reprints are gems within the history of photographic publishing.

A few are known but many are new, even to the connoisseur of photography books. All these books are virtually impossible to locate, so these reprints will make a substantial contribution to our understanding of this sub-genre of the photobook.

The box set is accompanied by a booklet which includes an introduction by Martin Parr, an essay discussing the wider context of these books by Gerry Badger, and English translations of all the texts in the books.

Five books in a box with a booklet :

- Enrique Bostelmann: América: un Viaje a traves de la injustica (176 pages, 11.2 x 7.9 in. / 28 x 20 cm, tritone, hardcover)
- Paolo Gasparini: Para verte major, América Latina (180 pages, 9.7 x 8.7 in. / 24.5 x 22.2 cm, tritone, softcover)
- Dirk Alveramnn: Algeria (224 pages, 4.3 x 7.1 in. / 10.8 x 18 cm, tritone, hardcover)
- Kitai Kazuo: Sanrizuka (184 pages, 7.1 x 9.6 in. / 18 x 24.3 cm, tritone, softcover)
- Paolo Mattioli and Anna Candiani: Immagini del No (124 pages, 3 x 3.9 in. / 7.5 x 9.8 cm, tritone, softcover)
