MEDIA REVIEWS
Discussing art as a function of politics, this book offers a fresh perspective on the place of art in our lives and our society. Writing in a direct and accessible manner, Sassower and Cicotelli bring clarity to a complex range of materials and philosophical positions. -- Adam J. Lerner, The Laboratory of Art and Ideas at Belmar
...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
