Google books says "The seventy paintings, drawings, and prints in this book reflect the tumultuous events that rocked our nation between 1930 and 1970: the Great Depression, World War II, McCarthyism, the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War. Art historian Frances K. Pohl examines the works in a chronological context, interweaving eloquent social history with incisive aesthetic criticism, while Phillip J. Schiller's introduction offers insights of a knowledgeable collector deeply committed to the works' humanist theme. Independent curator Andrea Swanson Honore's carefully researched biographies of the artists enhance the book's value as an important scholarly reference."
