Motown : the sound of young America by Adam White( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Motown: The Sound of Young America is the definitive, visual history of the Detroit-based independent record company which became a style unto itself, a prolific and hugely successful production line of suave, sassy and sophisticated music through the sixties, seventies and eighties. Featuring extensive, specially commissioned photography of treasures gathered from the archives, this landmark publication also captures the graphic and design iconography that underpinned Motown's extraordinary creativity. Packed with fresh insights gleaned from scores of interviews with key players, this exceptional and revealing book delves into the workings of the Motown machine and details how a dedicated team of backroom believers, white and black, turned a small family business into a popular music powerhouse. This was the home of Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Diana Ross & the Supremes, Marvin Gaye, the Jackson 5, the Temptations and many more. Motown: The Sound of Young America is a spectacular labour of love befitting an incredible story"--

From the creation of the highest mountains to the opening of a flower's petals, time controls the world around us. To understand this super-powerful force on Earth, we must wrench control of time ourselves' compressing, expanding, stopping and dissecting it, to reveal how the passing of time shapes our world and lives. And what of man's relationship with time? In Las Vegas, the 24/7 lifestyle has had an unexpected effect on the natural world; in paddy fields we are cheating time and growing rice faster than nature intended and revolutions in transport mean we can travel further and faster than ever before. But will man ever be able to defy time? Time Machine reveals how scientists are looking to the humble worm for the key to a longer life
