"This new series has much to commend it. It shows a keen awareness of recent artistic and critical developments, and it establishes a balance between setting the historical framework and analyzing themes and issues. These books, individually and as a group, provide an unusually coherent and comprehensive survey of the complex phenomenon of modern art over the whole course of the twentieth century."-Alex Potts, University of Michigan
