Editorial Reviews

Choice
As an example of integrated cultural history, Pohl's book stands as a model...highly recommended....
Booknews
Blacklisted by CBS during the McCarthy era and yet, ironically, incorporated into presidential "campaigns of truth" aimed at improving the US image abroad, Ben Shahn is a pivotal figure, revealing the complexities and contradictions inherent in this higly polarized movement in American history. Forty illustrations (two in color) are unaesthetic but demonstrate Shahn's work. Pohl teaches art history at Pomona. Acidic paper. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
