J. M. Mancini is Lecturer in Modern History at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth. She has published extensively on nineteenth and twentieth-century American history and culture.


Pre-Modernism by J. M. Mancini is ... a beautiful, thoughtfully designed book... It is written by a historian venturing into one of the most hotly contested areas of art history--the origins of modernism. She does so with considerable verve and the result is a fascinating exploration of the American art world in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. -- Ludmilla Jordanova The Historical Journal
