Reviews
"Shannon shows his capacity for beautifully nuanced discussions of works, attentive to details that bring out the many political and esthetic ambiguities of the factualist approaches."--Ina Blom, The Sixties
"[An] excellent study"--Ryan Bishop, ASAP Journal
"This is a terrific book. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Shannon cogently links leading art practices around 1968 to an interlocking set of understudied cultural conditions. The result bristles with insights and contributes substantially to our understanding of modernism."--Robin Kelsey, Harvard University

"This is an exciting and important book that should change the art historical landscape of the late-1960s and early-1970s in the United States and Western Europe. Considering that the scholarship of this contentious period has too often been divided into progressive versus reactionary camps, Shannon's book is a breath of fresh air. Its surprising and convincing interpretations of works both familiar and unfamiliar helps to reshuffle the deck of postwar modernism."--John J. Curley, Wake Forest University
