Exploring the entire history of American art in one slender volume is no mean feat, but Wright succeeds in guiding the reader on a fascinating tour of this sprawling subject. The layout of the book is based on a series from The Smithsonian in which subject areas are treated in a question and answer format. The format makes it really easy to digest the material in chunks to read at leisure or as a casual reference. But if you read it end-to-end 'as I did', you'll find a grander, more formal survey structure underlies it all. This book is a great jumping off point for more detailed exploration in areas of interest, but also provides an intelligent, concise history on its own. Recommended.
