In the News & New Reviews, Spring 2011

May 6, 2011

It’s been a little while since I posted a collection of reviews and such, so here’s a recent batch, plus some old ones that slipped through the cracks:
1) Signs of Change and Celebrate People’s History have both been reviewed by Meehan Crist in the February issue of the Believer!
2) Daniel Tucker wrote a great review of Signs of Change in AfterImage magazine. They only have an excerpt on their site, but he has published the review in it’s entirety HERE.
3) Elevated Difference published a nice short review of Firebrands, “these firebrands really sound inspiring.” Read the rest HERE.
4) Kari O’Driscoll wrote a review of Signs of Change, also on the Elevated Difference site. She says, “Signs of Change is both a coffee table book and a full-color history lesson. For those who prefer an alternative to a boring textbook, this book is the ticket.” Read the rest HERE.
5) Jason Urban posted a rave review of Signs of Change on Printeresting! He says, “With the current state of political upheaval and the growing strength of grassroots opposition in the Middle East, it might be a good time to visit the role of graphics in people’s movements. Dara Greenwald and Josh MacPhee do just that in Signs of Change: Social Movement Cultures from 1960s to Now. . . . It functions as a short but thorough encyclopedia of people’s political movements.” Read the rest, and check out the photos, HERE.

5) Our Man In Boston blog posted a review of CPH. Writing the review the day after Obama’s State of Nation address, he says “Speaking of matters of governance and politics, Josh MacPhee’s wonderful anthology Celebrate People’s History: The Poster Book of Resistance and Revolution (Feminist Press) was (and is) a splendid antidote to the annual pantomime of democracy I viewed last night.” Read the rest HERE.
6) The Tarleton Art Guide (TAG) just ran a nice review of Realizing the Impossible, it says “It’s a sprawling and inclusive collection bursting with ideas and images.” Read the rest HERE.
