The book throws out a lot of names and complicated ideas. It scratches the surface enough to give the flavor of the contours of thought in this complex discipline and enough to leave me wanting more. Fortunately, each chapter contains a descriptive further reading section—this book is going to sell books by other authors.
This book will remain my overall bibliography and starting guide for years to come as I delve further into art history, or rather, art histories.
