From the Back Cover:

'The Modern movement in the arts transformed consciousness and artistic form just as the energies of modernity--scientific, technological, philosophical, political--transformed for ever the nature, the speed, the sensation of human life, ' write the editors in their new Preface. This now classic survey explores the ideas, the groupings and the social tensions that shaped this transformation.
