"A well-written, insightful, and meticulously researched study of Shahn's mature work in the context of McCarthyism. . . . Given Shahn's deep commitment to politics throughout his career, a book such as Pohl's is long overdue. . . . A pathbreaking study that will undoubtedly change the nature of Shahn scholarship as well as open up new avenues of research on aesthetic production in the United States at midcentury."--Winterthur PortfolioPohl, Frances K. is the author of 'Native American Mathematics' with ISBN 9780292755376 and ISBN 0292755376.
