America through American Eyes: An Exhibit of Recent Books that Reflect Life in the United States.
New York Public Library, NY.; Association of American Publishers, New York, NY.
This annotated bibliography lists approximately 300 American books representative of current, popular, and readily available publications. Because the intent is to give people in the Soviet Union an idea of America's current amusements, arts, and concerns, the books have been considered on their basis of being accessible to those unfamiliar with the English language. Written by Americans about Americans, most of the books were published within the last five years. Entries are arranged alphabetically according to author and include subjects such as architecture, land, the diversity and concerns of the American people, childrens books, sports, artists, photographers, folk art, music, dance, theater, movies, and television. Representative authors include Muhammed Ali, Julia Child, Duke Ellington, Allen Ginsberg, Georgia O'Keeffe, Dr. Seuss, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Isaac Bashevis Singer, Susan Sontag, and Theodore White. A list of people, ideas, and events that have shaped our lives is included. (KC)
