This book provides a wealth of images (400+) in which artists have translated into visual language their response to the social and political conditions of their time. While texts may be on the short side for scholars, they are well-written and informative. The true role of the book is to provide the student of art history with a fine overview of its subject within drawing and print. It is organised chronologically and within the historical context of its time, e.g. The French Revolution and the Restoration: Prologue to the 19th Century. The work of lesser-known artists is found next to famous examples such as those by Courbet and Goya, thereby providing a more complete picture of the attitudes of artists to the social conditions of the time. The author includes a useful chapter with notes on each section of the book and a full bibliography. The book ends with an epilogue entitled Social Protest in Art Today, which nicely rounds up the total of 430 pages. All in all, a very useful volume.
