The bikeriders by Danny Lyon( Book )

16 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Including extensive interviews with racers and outlaws - the original edition being among the first books to use text from taped interviews - The Bikeriders is a vivid immersion in a culture that is now recognized as "the golden age" of motorcyclists, a world that few outsiders knew intimately in its heyday. Documenting the romance, risk, and abandon of dirt track racing and motorcycle gang life, the stories and photographs in The Bikeriders are as dramatic and real today as they were when they were lived, decades ago."--Jacket
Conversations with the dead : photographs of prison life, with the letters and drawings of Billy McCune #122054 by Danny Lyon( Book )

13 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A digitally remastered facsimile edition of Danny Lyon's seminal 1971 photobook, highly influential in the history of documentary photography. Heralded as a "masterpiece" by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger in 'The Photobook: A History Volume II'. Revolutionary in the 1970s, Lyon's record of life inside the Texas prison system was one of the first photobooks to include ephemera and has been out of print for over 40 years. A valuable collector's item, first edition hardbacks in good condition sell for over $1000, this edition has been updated with a new afterword by Danny Lyon. The growth of the prison population in the US - currently the largest in the world - and recent debate over the drugs used in carrying out the death penalty highlight the continued relevance of this book today

SNCC 50th Anniversary Conference by Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (U.S.)( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volume 19: Over the years, the popular media has had a troubled relationship with organizations like SNCC. Hollywood film director Phil Alden Robinson maintains that a big challenge to producing freedom movement films for theatrical distribution is the assumption that the films won't sell overseas. The entertainment values that drive the news limit the depiction of day-to-day grassroots organizing to dramatic protests. However, "media" is no longer defined as exclusively Hollywood, network television or mainstream print media. "Young people especially", says photographer Maria Varela, "are not just cultural consumers but culture-makers."

Each story is presented as a complete piece for the first time and brings together photographs and writings from throughout his remarkable career.
