"Hopkins is an able guide...creating a self-determined path through some remakrably dense territory but ready to point out the meaningful byways as well."--John Loughery, The Washington Post
"The intelligent and sophisticated synthesis of key debates makes this volume invaluable. This skillful re-integration of developments in the art of post-war Europe with that of America is impressive and controversial."--Patricia Bickers Art Monthly
"Finally an affordable, clearly written book on the Contemporary Era. Filled with resources and analysis that students can use."--Steven Michael Vroom, Cornish College of the Arts
"This excellent work focuses on important movements and issues in the visual arts from WWII to the present....[Hopkins]...succeeds in extending discussion out from American art to provide an international perspective as well as an exceptionally stimulating and cohesive commentary on the 'difficult' art of the 1960s,'70s, and '80s. Reproductions are good; well-chosen, helpful notes; brief chapter bibliographies; useful time line; list of Web sites. Upper-division undergraduates and up."--CHOICE
"After Modern Art, in only 245 pages, covers that amazing creative period following the Second World War. Well documented with a good array of illustrations, this book is fun reading."--Gadfly
"An invaluable guide to art of the second half of the twentieth century."--Sandy Nairne, Tate Gallery
