Putting Modernism Together by Daniel Albright
Putting Modernism Together by Daniel Albright
In Putting Modernism Together, the author argues human culture can best be understood as a growth-pattern or ramifying of artistic, intellectual, and political action. Going beyond merely explaining how the artists in these genres achieved their peculiar effects, he presents challenging new analyses of telling craft details which help students and scholars come to know more fully this bold age of aesthetic extremism.

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School—The term concentration camp is most often associated with Nazi Germany, but teens may think differently after reading this account of curating the Japanese American National Museum's exhibit "Remembering the Japanese American Experience." Ishizuka chronicles the exhibit's development from its inception, its first visitors' responses, reminiscences and stories, and its opening on Ellis Island when the need arose to meet with the local Jewish community to discuss the use of the controversial term "concentration camp." After more than two years of meetings and discussions, it was finally decided not to change or restrict the exhibit's use of the term. The author also provides a different perspective on how incarcerated Japanese Americans responded to being unlawfully interned. Often history texts have portrayed them as passive and submissive, but Ishizuka has gathered primary sources that show that many Japanese Americans whose lives were disrupted and radically changed by Executive Order 9066 did voice their disgust and anger toward their government's decisions. It is sad to note how the U.S. government responded to their letters and pleas-many were simply ignored, while others received convoluted responses from various agencies, and some of the writers were moved to more isolated camps farther from their families. The inclusion of photographs, letters, and newspaper clippings from the 1940s adds to the book's competent telling and makes it a good addition to the study of this period in American history.—Joanne Ligamari, Rio Linda School District, Sacramento, CA

"The reviewer has been teaching Asian American history for twenty years and did not think there was much more about the camps that would surprise him, but this book moved him in ways he had not expected. He recommends it to everyone interested in this dark episode of our national history."--Historian
