It has an Author's note that talks about his life and says that he was so involved that you could track history through looking at his paintings.

As the illustrator's note suggests, Ben Shahn's influence is noteworthy and I enjoyed Evan Turk explanation of his technique to pay tribute to one of his favorite artists.
