About this title

Synopsis:

Hard to Find book

From Library Journal:

The publication of these two volumes coincides with the 200th anniversary of the founding of West Point in March 2002. The first is a brief history and a companion to the PBS special to air in March, while the second is a photographic essay on student life at the academy. Executive producer Grant and historians James Lynch and Ronald Bailey have written an excellent short history of the academy. They emphasize the contributions of superintendents Alden Partridge, Sylvanus Thayer, Robert E. Lee, and Douglas MacArthur, spicing the text with well-chosen reproductions of historical artifacts, photographs, drawings, and paintings. Also covered are the hazing scandals, interracial problems, and the violations of the honor code. (The football scandals of the 1950s are not mentioned, however.) The authors stress that the current excellence of the academic program is based on the continual emphasis on mathematics and the physical sciences. Internationally known photographer Lippman (Bali Journal) spent over a year at the academy as an artist in residence. Her black-and-white photographs vividly portray cadet life, parades, maneuvers, and athletic pursuits. Excellent composition and an emphasis on contrast have created the most beautiful book ever devoted to life at West Point. West Point graduate and author Salter (Burning the Days: A Recollection) contributes a brief narrative. The PBS companion is recommended for all libraries seeking an excellent short history of West Point. Lippman's photographic essay would be a welcome addition to libraries housing large art collections. Richard Nowicki, Emerson Vocational High (ret.), Buffalo, NY
