 OUTSTANDING ACADEMIC TITLE ~ CHOICE, 2003 "This excellent publication builds on the earlier [above] publication. It has broadened the scope to include artists from throughout the US, rectified...omission of African American artists...and concentrated  
 on 88 artists...excellent layout and superb photographs.
"Highly recommended"

2005 WRITERS NOTES BOOK AWARD, April 19, 2005

"Herskovic overviews American abstract expressionism with this hefty volume of plates. Beyond the names you'll immediately recognize (Pollack,  De Kooning, Gorky, etc.) this alphabetically arranged set takes a fair and complete look, including commentary from the artists.... We like Kline's ideas on size and space and also when De Kooning says, "spiritually I am wherever my spirit allows me to be." American Abstract should be a  fixture in libraries and the homes of the lovers of the form."
 "Researchers will seek out this well designed selection."
