    The social relations, societal structures and existential conundrums in the world of Harry Potter novels reflect our own.

  • The Means to Killby Gerrit Dworok; Frank Jacob

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2016; US$ 65.00

    Throughout human history, technological innovation has functioned as a driver of civilization and inspired many people's belief in progress.

  • Property and Power in English Gothic Literatureby Ruth Bienstock Anolik

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2016; US$ 55.00

    Eighteenth-century England witnessed major social and economic changes, including the commodification of property, person and text through legal containments--enclosure, coverture, primogeniture, copyright. English Gothic authors responded with tropes that worked to dispel the assurances of possession--the contested castle, the beleaguered yet enduring... more...

  • To Vietnam in Vainby Edward A. Hagan

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2016; US$ 55.00

  • ...But If a Zombie Apocalypse Did Occurby Amy L. Thompson; Antonio S. Thompson

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2015; US$ 29.95

    Part pop culture trope, part hypothetical cataclysm, the zombie apocalypse is rooted in modern literature, film and mythology.

  • "Aid and Comfort"by Henry Mark Holzer; Erika Holzer

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2006; US$ 25.00

    Jane Fonda's visit to Hanoi in July 1972 and her pro-North Vietnamese, anti-American conduct, especially her pose with an anti-aircraft gun used to shoot down American planes and her propaganda broadcasts directed toward American troops, angered many Americans. In their eyes, she was guilty of treason, but she was never charged by the American... more...
