What's New In HardBacks

 Welcome to our 2016 and beginning of 2017 hardback collection. Some of the books to keep an eye on are Blood In The Water by Heather Ann Thompson and Robert Parish Moses by Laura Visser-Maessen, both extremely informative on respective subjects. Attica was disgusting and should never have happened in a 'humane' society. What Prof. Thompson reveals will leave you shaking your head and wondering when the indictments are coming down. Bob Moses (SNCC) was so quiet, persistent and disciplined that you tend to forget about him but there is no denying his courage and his message. Jazz:Iconic Collection of Ted Williams by ACC Editions has wonderful black and white pictures of Jazz greats spanning the 50s and 60s. The fantastic Jimmy Cobb at his drum kit and can't be more than 24 or 25 yrs. old is classic.  Michael Jackson:The Rewind by Daryl Easlea and Motown:The Sound of Young America by Adam White with Barney Ales takes you back to a time that if you lived it you have to smile. The Marvin Gaye classic cover 'What's Going On' with Marvin in a raincoat standing in a playground is beyond memorable. This photo alone is worth the price of the book. Of course there are many, many other photographs that are just as rich. The new National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. is causing quite a stir here in the Los Angeles community. The three books represented on this list and the pictures within will leave you wanting to make the trip when possible. All in all there were some excellent titles released this year (2016) fiction, non-fiction, cook books etc. a jambalya of knowledge. Hope to see you soon at Eso Won either online or at the shop. Our motto (and we did borrow it from Neely Fuller, Jr.) is to KEEP LEARNING which means you've got to keep reading.Now, let's get ready for the Donald Trump administration. Peace!
