From the Inside Flap
"The accomplishment of this book is astounding. It will change the way scholars think about the totality of the world of contemporary art, and it will be the essential text for generations of students to come." --Richard Shiff, University of Texas, Austin

The interviews and artist writings are compelling and enlightening. I haven't read through the entire book yet, but find myself anxious to get back to it after having set it down.
The only thing that could've made it any better would be to have color reproductions of genre examples and each artist's work. It's helpful and enjoyable to link the concepts and ideas presented to the work.
Overall, great book! Glad I purchased the hardcover as I know I'll be hanging on to this one for years to come.
This book is dense, with very thin pages, so you must treat it well.
