Elvis Presley Boek The Elvis Encyclopedia Hard Cover

EngelstaligComplete with cross-referencing and a comprehensive bibliography, The Elvis Encyclopedia with 600 pages and hundreds of photographs surpasses everything that has come before it. It is a true testament to the legend that is Elvis Presley. The Elvis Encyclopedia is also a visual compendium of Elvis' life, offering hundreds of photographs, ranging from never-before-seen unposed moments to the extraordinary iconic images the world has come to love. With this definitive one-stop resource, fans and scholars finally have easy access to all of the information on Elvis' life and times, testing what is real against legend. The facts are represented in full - a childhood mired in poverty, his unstoppable rise to the top with over 150 gold, platinum, or multi-platinum albums, 31 feature films, and 14 Grammy awards, his marriage to Priscilla, his early death. Entries cover every significant aspect of Elvis and his world from family members, lovers, benefactors, mentors, agents, directors, co-stars, and coaches.More than thirty years after his death, Elvis Presley remains indelibly etched into the American psyche. As the Elvis of myth - an embodiment of the American Dream in the flesh - has become synonymous with Elvis the man, the subject of countless books, articles and songs, it has become increasingly hard to discern who Elvis really was. By combining obsessive research with absorbing writing, Adam Victor, author of the bestselling The Marilyn Encyclopedia, sifts through the competing versions of events throughout Elvis' life and traces a young man's path to immortality. The Elvis Encyclopedia, the product of years of research, was created to help bring order to the massive amount of material written about Elvis Presley. In doing so, it stands as the most comprehensive book about his extraordinary life and legacy ever published. [One of the most remarkable books released in 2008 is 'The Elvis Encyclopedia'. This book contains a true treasure of Elvis infomation and will come in handy if you are looking for some extra infomation about Elvis. Some items are explained simply, while others - like the word 'will' for example, contains a very detailed complete text of Elvis' last will.Without any doubt, this book is going to be one of the favourites on many holiday wish lists...]Praise for The Elvis Encyclopedia:This obsessively detailed and completely entertaining chronicle by Victor (The Marilyn Encyclopedia) of every possible aspect of Elvis Presley's life is mesmerizing and deserves a wide audience.

But nonfans will marvel at such meticulously researched entries as Religion (a vision of Stalin and Jesus in a high bank of cloud made Elvis consider joining a monastery), as well as a comprehensive state-by-state list of Hotels Where Elvis Stayed.
