From the Publisher"Shows why and how artists become activists, without sacrificing their art. These are fascinating stories."
- David S. Meyer, University of California, Irvine.
From the Foreword:
Lechaux and Roussel “present iconic figures who reveal to us a broad register of ways of engaging, a repertoire of argument that we could not anticipate beforehand. Thus the reader emerges with a much deeper understanding of the nexus between politics, culture, and human subjectivity. And also, of course, of the topic at hand – how artists tried to make a difference in a very specific episode of contemporary American history. The experience will be enriching and imminently worthwhile. This is why I invite you to spend a few hours with this book. You will not be disappointed.”
