Reviews

'Convincingly demonstrates the ways in which the period under consideration helped "define the aesthetics and politics of the twentieth century, and through this [the collection] links the cognate fields of modernism and the black Atlantic"'
- Dominic Thomas, University of California, Los Angeles, French Studies
