Providing a historical taxonomy of the early modernist art groups in Europe and America, Milton Cohen demonstrates how these groups were largely responsible for the artistic innovation and nearly all the avant-garde agitation and major events of these years. With concluding appendices intended for scholars and specialists, this engagingly written book will be useful not only for classroom use and scholarly research, but will appeal to anyone interested in reading a fresh approach to the history of this period.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Milton Cohen has written a fascinating book....A terrifically engaging and useful book. * European History, January 2009 *
This beautifully written study defines pre-World-War-I European modernism as an essentially group-driven phenomenon and takes us deep into the movement's social dynamics. How does one define a modernist group? Who emerged as leaders within these groups and why? What role did nationalism play in the desire of so many modernist artists to band together? The first four chapters of Movement, Manifesto, Melee answer these questions (and many more) and offer a fresh perspective on a subject too commonly approached in terms of isolated figures. -- Steven Trout, Fort Hays State University
