"Roy Kotynek and John Cohassey's new work, America's Cultural Rebels: Avant-Gardes and Countercultures, widens the scope and heightens the impact of this kind of cultural history."
"America's Cultural Rebels is well-researched, authoritative, useful, and--a bonus--immensely readable. This is not only an important book, it is also a necessary book. I'm genuinely grateful for it. "
