American historian of modern Europe and Germany McClelland warns that he is offering a social rather than traditional art history, and approaches artists as social beings not isolated geniuses. He limits his study to visual artists in Germany only because his original plan proved too grand, but hopes readers can generalize to artists in other fields, elsewhere in Europe, and across the Atlantic. Annotation : 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
