White's Transatlantic Avant-Gardes: Little Magazines and Localist Modernism, and Loren Glass’s Counterculture Colophon: Grove Press, the Evergreen Review, and the Incorporation of the Avant-Garde exemplify the maturity as well as the long-term impact of a vein of research on modernism, modern media technologies, book history, and periodical studies that is transforming the field.
