Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In 1992, Gleason (Baton Rouge, Louisiana State Univ. Pr., 1991) died in a helicopter crash while taking photographs for this book. Although his work was largely finished, other photos of Atlanta have been included to complete the book. The 148 color photos assembled afford a wonderful view of Atlanta's downtown, colleges and universities, midtown and Buckhead sections, historic district, leisure, enter-tainment, sporting centers, and environs. Sites shown include the State Capitol and City Hall, Emory University, the Governor's Mansion, the Carter Presidential and Martin Luther King centers, Stone Mountain Park, and the Chattahoochee River. While the introduction and captions provide some noteworthy information, the photos are the stars of this book. Pictorial guides are always in high demand, and this one of superior quality is highly recommended for all libraries.-Elizabeth Loftus, Onondaga Cty. P.L., Syracuse, N.Y.
A photo portrait, for the city's residents or nostalgic ex-residents. Photographer Gleason's skillful documentation of architectural, cultural, and natural features is complemented by informative captions and a brief introduction (by Don O'Briant and John Stone, respectively), but diminished by muddy color reproduction. No bibliography. 9.5x12.25" Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
