Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nobody could have predicted the devastating September 11th attacks that shook the United States and raised a specter of remarkable uncertainty over American history, economy, iconic images, and the country's future. However, at one of the lowest points in American history, the celebrations of all things American is at an all time high. America Then and Now documents the amazing transformation that has taken place in the United States over the past one hundred and fifty years by contrasting photographs of prominent scenes and monument at their origins with contemporary images and quintessential moments we recognize today. Some are no longer recognizable, some have reassuringly stayed the same. America Then and Now combines illuminating and informative text and over 200 fascinating black and white and colour photographs to provide a unique window on America's past and present.

Synopsis:

This narrative documents the amazing transformation that has taken place in the United States over the past 150 years by contrasting photos of prominent scenes and monuments with contemporary images. 250 photos.

Synopsis:

At one of our country's lowest points in history, the celebration of all things American is at an all time high as we reflect on where we've been, where we're going in a context that has been irreversibly changed.
