"Arthur Szyk was one of the most creative and determined political activists of his time. A gifted book illustrator and illuminator, a skillful caricaturist, and a crusader for causes, this multifaceted artist ceaselessly defended the rights of Jews and advocated on their behalf." "The Art and Politics of Arthur Szyk, based on the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's exhibition of the same name, places the artist and his work into the context of the turbulent times in which he lived (1894-1951). This illustrated text examines how Arthur Szyk used his talent to support the Jewish people, attack their enemies, and awaken the world to the threat of Nazism."--BOOK JACKET
