The cover features a photo of Thich Quang Durc, a Vietnamese Buddist monk, burning himself to death in Saigon, in 1963. The monk was protesting President Ngo Dinh Diem's administration for oppressing the Buddhist religion. The photograph drew international attention and persuaded U.S. President John F. Kennedy to withdraw support for Ngo Dinh Diem's government. It was taken by Associated Press correspondent Malcolm Browne; a similar photograph earned the award of World Press Photo Of The Year in 1963.
