Abstract:

"Spanning a half-century, the 90 evocative photographs in this volume crystallize the essence of America. Reproduced directly from the originals, they preserve forever the Steeplechase Amusement Park in Coney Island (1940), a memorable first day of school in New York City (1950), Stan Musial and the 1951 St. Louis Cardinals, the vitality of John F. Kennedy (1961), the ideal of small-town life, the changing South, the sweeping natural beauty of the West and striking images of presidents from Franklin Roosevelt to Ronald Reagan. The product of Rothstein's more than 45 years as a photojournalist, this stirring anthology is an affirmation of faith in America. It is also a testament to the photographer's artistry and versatility. Hailed by critics at home and abroad, Rothstein's vignettes of daily life, his revealing portraits, breathtaking landscapes, and thought­ provoking still lifes raise documentary photography to a fine art. His photographs, masterly in their sense of design and composition, are in the permanent collections of major museums, and exhibitions of his works have been presented at the Smithsonian Institution, Washington; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the International Museum of Photography, Rochester; the Royal Photographic Society, London; and the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris"--Back cover.
