>Comments on the book:
>"Allan Antliff's important book examines the work of anarchist
>artists and critics, whose emphasis on freedom and innovation placed
>them in the avant-garde of the twentieth century. Among them were
>such figures as Robert Henri, Alfred Steiglitz, and Man Ray, as well
>as Emma Goldman for whom anarchism was a natural philosophy of
>artists. Treating them and others with intelligence and insight,
>Antliff brings a new voice to the historical discourse, a voice
>which commands attention and carries conviction." Paul Avrich
>"An excellent chronicle of the impact of anarchism on early
>twentieth-century art in America, Anarchist Modernism restores
>anarchism to its rightful prominence as a crucial component of the
>culture of the time and will now stand as the major consideration of
>the interconnectedness of American art and anarchism in this
>period." Linda Dalrymple Henderson
