"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews


“You can almost smell the turpentine, the oils, the materials an artist incorporates into his/her work. You can hear the voice of the artist and it is direct not filtered through others’ interpretations. It enables you to feel the work. This is a wonderful resource and it is an entertaining, charming read. Once you begin to meet the artists through the well-considered and well-answered question, it is hard to stop reading. This book will become a must-have for curators and others within the art world.” — Becky Duval Reese, Director (retired) of El Paso Museum of Art
(Becky Duval Reese 2015-01-31)

"Bunch has made a valuable contribution to the history of contemporary art in Texas, illuminating our understanding of collage and assemblage in the words of the artists themselves. These interviews provide insight into their lives, their work, and their thought processes.”— William J. Chiego Director of the McNay Art Museum
(William J. Chiego 2016-05-17)

“Robert Craig Bunch uncovers a fascinating history in The Art of Found Objects: Interviews with Texas Artists. Opening with the premise that a vital current of collage and assemblage has been one of the defining aspects of Texas art since the 1960s, Bunch engages 65 artists in a series of revealing conversations. Ranging statewide, across generations, investigating both mainstream art and vernacular traditions, Bunch teases out new information that will prove to be a valuable resource for scholars and a delight for general readers. Some of Bunch’s questions are to be expected: What typically inspires a work of art? How does such a work grow? When is it finished? But Bunch also takes both his subjects through the more complex byways of creativity, identity, and the sense of place that distinguishes the art of our times and the state we are in.” — Alison de Lima Greene, Isabel Brown Wilson Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
(Alison de Lima Greene 2016-05-25)

“A vital reference for understanding assemblage art in the twentieth century and contemporary South…an enjoyable, illuminating, and pleasurable read.”—The Menil Collection
(The Menil Collection 2017-04-25)
