Product Description

Review

The book uses a number of aids- from boxes highlighting important concepts or authors, to neat summaries of chapters, to a detailed glossary of terms and concepts, to an excellent annotated bibliography- to help students coming to modernism for the first time gain a foothold in what is an incredibly large field of study. It is an excellent introduction to what is a nebulous and ungainly topic.--Sanford Lakoff
