About this title: In the early years of the 20th century, a band of talented individualists living in Greenwich Village set out to change the world. Committed to free speech, free love, and political art, they swept away sexual prudery, stodgy bourgeois art, and political conservatism. Stansell offers a comprehensive history of this period that flourished briefly until America entered the First World War and patriotism trumped self-expression. Illustrations.
