More than thirty years after his death, Elvis Presley remains indelibly etched into the popular psyche. As the Elvis of myth 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 sifts through the competing versions of events throughout Elvis' life and traces a young man's path to immortality. The Elvis Encyclopedia 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. It is also a visual compendium of Elvis' life, offering hundreds of photographs, ranging from never-before-seen private 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. Complete with cross-referencing and a comprehensive bibliography, The Elvis Encyclopedia surpasses everything that has come before it. It is a true testament to the legend that is Elvis Presley.
