When it came to the aimlessness of the troubled, American youth of the turbulent 1950s - I'd say that it was the decidedly damaged screen-persona of actor, James Dean that struck a familiar chord with many of these rebels without a cause.

Dean seemed to be the one whom many of these restless youngsters most identified with in regards to his rebellious image and his dramatized on-screen angst.

Meticulously compiled by George Perry - This glossy, well-researched book is a first-rate pictorial biography of Dean, carefully covering both his professional and his personal life from his birth (1931) to his untimely death (1955).

Not only does this book contain rare, never-before-seen photographs of James (culled from the Dean family's private collection) - But it also includes numerous quotes from those who knew this man and worked around him, as well.
