It is organized into eight sections, from the legacy of symbolism at the turn of the century to contemporary debates about the postmodern. Each section is prefaced by a brief essay. There are introductions for all of the 300-plus texts, so that theories and critical approaches are placed in context. The volume also includes an extensive bibliography. The result is both a comprehensive collection of documents on twentieth-century art and an encyclopedic history of relevant theory.Charles Harrison is the author of a number of books on modern art criticism and art theory. He has been continuously involved in modern art as an exhibitor, critic, historian and theorist. Paul Wood has published widely in exhibition catalogues and journals including Art History, Artscribe and Arts Magazine. He is a consulting editor for the Oxford Arts Journal.
