From the Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street, 2011 was a turbulent year. As always, Getty Images photographers were front and center to document the events that mattered, from the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan to the joyous occasion of a royal wedding. These images capture the major political conflicts and social issues of our time—as well as highlights in sports, fashion, and entertainment—and shine a light on the emotions of the moment and the significant backstories. The Year in Focus showcases our talented photographers’ and editors’ finest work.

What a year
Great free download... Moving pictures, interesting stories, good times.
A book with Videos, unbelievable photos and a music bed - this is the future of books as we know it - as they say a picture is worth a 1000 words - well this must be a some where in a billion words - very touching story of a great photographer Chris Hondros, who was lost last year in Libya - over all what can I say - a must have!!!...and it's free!
Movies kept crashing the book.
The images are wonderful. The way they are displayed was great. However, I couldn't see any of the movies though. The book continually crashed. I did a restart, cold restart, warm restart (kidding). Still could not get them to play and could not get book to stop crashing. Unfortunately there isn't a way to report this and get it corrected. sigh...
