This well-considered study of the political ramifications of the activities of certain European artists clearly depicts the nexus between aesthetics and civil consciousness. French scholar Lewis traces the political nature of the Surrealist movement from turn-of-the-century Dadaism to the Cold War. Utilizing primary-source material that includes a heady collection of Surrealist tracts, she presents a coherent and intriguing overview of both the individual artists and the cultures in which they worked. This book serves as a helpful introduction to the intellectual content of Surrealism. Photos not seen. Francisca Goldsmith, Golden Gate Univ. Lib., San Francisco, Cal.
