New York's Capital District: 1978-2003 is an extraordinary collection of photographs depicting the area's most memorable people and moments. Showcasing the work of award-winning photojournalist Tom Killips, the book highlights a quarter-century of life in the greater-Albany-Troy-Rensselaer County area. Divided into four sections-news, features, sports, and arts and entertainment-New York's Capital District: 1978-2003 goes directly to the heart of the action.

In focus are the political careers of Hugh Carey, Mario Cuomo, and George Pataki, as well as those of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Erastus Corning II, John Sweeney, Jerry Jennings, Joseph L. Bruno, and others; the visits of actors Jack Nicholson and Kevin Kline and golf legends Arnold Palmer and Lee Trevino; and the athletic careers of Mike Tyson, Sam Perkins, and Dottie Pepper Mochrie. This volume also captures the blizzard of 1993 burying the community, the flood of 1996 blurring the line between the land and the mighty Hudson River, and the tornado of 1998 leveling homes in its path.
