...instructors of art and their students will especially benefit from this thought-provoking and nuanced book. -- Anthony Birch, Gainesville, Georgia * Bridges *
In an important and ground-breaking analysis, Sassower and Cicotello dissect the social power of imagery, from art to propaganda. Now more than ever images shape and control our lives, and this book points in a new direction, perhaps toward a new discipline, for understanding them. From politics and economics to structures of the mind, the context and appeal of art is examined through a radical social/aesthetic approach. The right questions are asked-about interests, culture, beauty-and a deep reading of images emerges, a reading increasingly essential for our time. -- Will Wright, Colorado State University-Pueblo
