From the Publisher"A splendid new edition . . . The quality of editing here sets new standards for Futurist scholarship . . . The English-language reception of Italian Futurism, and Futurist studies in general, will stand on a firmer footing from now on."
—John J. White, Emeritus Professor of German and Comparative Literature, Senior Research Fellow, King's College London
"The critical writings of Marinetti, now made available in English for the first time by Berghaus and Thompson, will be of major value in providing essential primary sources with which to evaluate Futurism's deeper significance as a counterblast to what Walter Benjamin called the Storm of Progress."
—Roger Griffin, Professor of Modern History, Oxford Brookes University, and author of The Nature of Facism
"An accurate, meticulously assembled, three-dimensional portrait of the founder of Italian Futurism. Whereas prior anthologies of Marinetti's writings had limited themselves to the movement's early years, this anthology offers instead a panoramic view, extending from the pre-Futurist period into the second decade of facist rule. A major contribution to studes of Futurism and the avant-gardes." —Jeffrey T. Schnapp, Professor, Stanford University
"At last! For the first time, we have here a scholarly, comprehensive, well-translated, well-annotated, eminently readable English edition of F. T. Marinetti's ground-breaking Futurist manifestos and critical writings. For teachers and students of the avant-garde, of early twentieth-century art movements, of the role of the new media like radio and cinema, and of the vexed relationship between Futurist aesthetic and Fascist politics, Günter Berghaus's edition will be indispensable."
—Marjorie Perloff, author of The Futurist Moment, Professor Emerita Stanford University
