A People's Art History of the United States: 250 Years of Activist Art and Artists Working in Social Justice Movements (Hardcover)

Special Order—Subject to Availability


An exciting new entry in Howard Zinn’s New Press People’s History Series, A People’s Art History of the United States places art history squarely in the rough and tumble ferment of politics, social struggles, and the fight for justice, from the colonial era through the present day—stylishly illustrated with over 100 examples of American political artwork.

Interweaving history and art history, author and radical artist Nicolas Lampert combines historical sweep with detailed examinations of individual artists and works, in a politically-charged narrative that spans the conquest of the Americas; the American Revolution; slavery and abolition; western expansion; the suffragette movement and feminism; civil rights movements; anti-war protests; environmental movements; GLBT movements; the anti-globalization movement; and the present antiwar movement.
