"The United States of America isn't any old coffee-table book. Presented as a state-by-state tour, spanning 100 years, every picture is so real, so of-the-moment, you feel you're in the back of a pick-up truck with the photographer the moment he/she pressed the shutter button."--The Telegraph, London
"The United States of America is a celebration not just of the magazine's excellent and timeless photography but also the people, history and wonder of America."
"The United State of America is both timely and poignant. [...] ...the book's two volumes overflow with iconic photographs of spacious skies, majestic mountains and the details of life in the USA."--The Chicago Tribune
"At moments when civilisation finds itself poised on the precipice of a daunting new era, it's all too easy to forget the monumental events both political and socio-cultural that the world as we know it has already withstood. [...] TASCHEN's weighty new release The United States of America serves as an unequivocally grounding reminder that not only is history perhaps the greatest educational resource of them all, but also that everything is transient."
"...a stirring account of the country's diverse populations, cultures, landscapes, and industries."
" armchair tour through our collective history.", New York
