Summary:
"For most of this century, artistic and political vanguards were spellbound by the Communist promise of a new human era. In The Red Atlantis, J. Hoberman sifts through the wreckage of Marxist fantasy, arguing that Communism produced a complex culture with a dialectical relation to both modernism and itself, and, in doing so, became the aesthetic project of the twentieth century."--Jacket.
