How Many Roads?
by Jonathan Sa'adah
"A book...that obliterates the distance between the present and the charged past. These photographs are the work of a master." -- Teju Cole
An extraordinary look back at the 1960s and early 1970s, one of the most turbulent and pivotal periods in American history, Sa'adah's book is a searching portrait of a nation divided by war and increasing corporate domination: a time that led many young people to search for alternative ways of living and structuring society. Its ninety-one sepia photographs are arranged in three sections: "The Roads," "The War," and "The Garden." It includes an introduction by Teju Cole, essays by Elizabeth Adams, Hoyt Alverson, and Steven Tozer, and a preface by the photographer.
