Editorial Reviews

Art Bulletin
“This is not just a book, but an event ... The Total Art of Stalinism is an intellectual landmark.”
Boston Globe
“Art and the celebration of power all too often coincide, and the controversial message here is that artists, for all their insights into the human condition, can make a hash of society as completely as the most cynical of politicians.”
New Left Review
“One of the most astute commentators on the art scene today.”
From the Publisher
