    DescriptionSince the 17th century, manifestoes have defined the aims of radical groups, individuals and parties while galvanizing revolutionary movements. The author of this volume shows that the manifesto is both a signal genre of political modernity and one of the defining forms of aesthetic modernism. Ranging from the pamphlet wars of 17th-century England to dyke and ACT-UP manifestoes of the 1990s, her text offers an extended treatment of this influential form of discourse.

    Review quote
    "Janet Lyon's genre study of manifestoes and modernity has an impressively ambitious reach from the Diggers and Levellers to the feminist SCUM and cyborgianism. She posits telling conjunctures between aesthetics and politics, avant-gardism and feminism, in such historical moments as Republican France, literary modernism, and second-wave feminism. The result is a fresh, new reading of manifestoes as a revolutionary form of discourse interwoven with the history of feminism and inseparable from the formation of the modern subject in the West." Susan Stanford Friedman, University of Wisconsin Madison"
