Review of the hardback: '... I would urge anyone working on modernism to go away and read. ... John Xiros Cooper's passionately argued Modernism and the Culture of Market Society ... his is a brilliant polemic. This is an unremittingly materialist analysis ... that situates modernism in relation to the complex process of economic, technological, social and political modernization that created it.'
