Rebels in Bohemia: The Radicals of the Masses, 1911-1917

Acknowledgments

To those not fortunate enough to have lived "before the revolution" writing about such a period can provide both consolation and hope. Despite the naïveté and neuroses of The Masses' group, their utter sincerity of purpose disarmed me, and I decided to become the chronicler of their madcap escapades and serious missions.

Subsequently Gary Nash of the University of California at Los Angeles and Allen Matusow of Rice University read sections on Greenwich Village feminism and the popularization of Freudianism respectively and offered critical guidance in strengthening my thematic organization.

Those dedicated workers were always courteous and helpful, and the crew in the microfilm room at Lamont also provided comic relief in that Dark Hole of Calcutta.
