(Preface) 'Between 1900 and 1937 radical political and cultural changes took place in Russia with cataclysmic rapidity and diverse inspiration. A new generation of artists, writers and political theorists united in a rejection of the values of the past and in a relentless search for a new and modern world.
This book recreates the age which, in many respects, has shaped our thought and the culture in which we live. How far were Russia's artists reacting to change and how far did they anticipate it? David Elliott addresses these questions and vividly demonstrates, in hundreds of contemporary illustrations, in quotations and in an extended narrative, the exhilaration of working in those extraordinary years.'
