ISBN 090198146X In English.
Accompanies the first collective exhibition since the 1940s of a powerful series of 17 bronze relief plaques produced by Smith (1906-1965) as denunciations of war, the rise of Fascism in Europe and the prevalence of injustice, violence and greed in American society. Reproductions of the featured works and related drawings are accompanied by statements by the sculptor and two texts reprinted from the catalogue of the first exhibition of the series in 1940; a chronology of political and artistic conflicts during the 1930s; and a lengthy essay examining the themes and surrealistic style of the pieces in the context of the historical events that inspired their creation.
