Library Journal Review

In 1967, the first issue of Rolling Stone magazine commenced the publication's five--decade odyssey, which has included coverage of music, film, television, current events and politics, combined with memorable photographic portraits that range in mood from dramatic and emotional to whimsical. This gorgeous, large-scale coffee-table book is organized chronologically and includes iconic images of a vast panoply of the giants of the arts, excerpts from famous interviews and pieces, and current reflections and background context on some of the magazine's most memorable stories, with topics ranging from musicians and society to presidential campaigns, the early years of the AIDS epidemic, and the dangers of climate change. Writers from Hunter S. Thompson to Tom Wolfe, and -photographers such as Annie Leibovitz and Mark Seliger have been associated with Rolling Stone, and their work is pivotal in any review of the past decades of entertainment and culture. VERDICT As a capsule of the changing times, tastes and styles of the last half-century, this book is both a fitting tribute to a singular publication, and more importantly, a mirror and survey of our society and times.-James Collins, Morristown-Morris Twp.
