Walz Book CoverA textbook edition of Modernism by Professor of History Robin Walz is scheduled for release in January 2013. A revised and expanded second edition of his Modernism for the "Short Histories of Big Ideas" series (Longman-Pearson, 2007), the textbook is part of Pearson's "Seminar Studies" series. It includes documents, a chronology, glossary, who's who, and a guide to further readings.  As summarized by the publisher: "In this concise introduction, intellectual historian Robin Walz shows how modernism constituted an avant-garde cultural revolution across the fields of art, literature, music, design and architecture in the twentieth century. This comprehensive history traces the development of modernism from its nineteenth-century antecedents through its postmodern legacies, and guides the reader through the complex critical issues of the era." Walz also recently published "Collaboration during the Occupation: The 'St-Cyr and Kohler' Mysteries," a review of J.
