"The New West" first appeared in 1974 and has been out of print since the Eighties. The book is presented here in a new edition, with the original foreword by John Szarkowski, and a new essay by Heinz Liesbrock, as well as a recent conversation between Robert Adams and Thomas Weski.
" Adams's theme is the transformation of the old West into the one-dimensional America of the present, the perversion of a landscape wich once stood for , the idea of an entire nation, until it becomes the background for a tame and corrupt society." (Heinz Liesbrock)
