All the composers and artists featured in this anthology incurred the wrath of censors who officially banned their works. The cultural views of such personalities as Stalin, Hitler, Franco or Salazar, not to mention McCarthy, had consequences including assassination, deportation and exile, and they led to a rejection of modernity. The value of works scorned by governments, however, has not been overlooked by history.
