  • Partisans of the Southern Pressby Carl R. Osthaus

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Carl R. Osthaus examines the southern contribution to American Press history, from Thomas Ritchie's mastery of sectional politics and the New Orleans Picayune 's popular voice and use of local color, to the emergence of progressive New South editors Henry Watterson, Francis Dawson, and Henry Grady, who imitated, as far as possible, the New Journalism... more...

  • The Modern Satiric Grotesque and Its Traditionsby John R. Clark

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Thomas Mann predicted that no manner or mode in literature would be so typical or so pervasive in the twentieth century as the grotesque. Assuredly he was correct. The subjects and methods of our comic literature (and much of our other literature) are regularly disturbing and often repulsive -- no laughing matter. In this ambitious study, John R.... more...

  • Just Talkby Lilian R. Furst

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    While countless memoirs have been written about depression and therapy, no one has examined how the "talking cure" of psychotherapy is presented in novels and other works of literature. Beginning with an overview of the principles of psychotherapy and its growing use as a treatment for mental and emotional disorders, Lilian Furst addresses the patient's... more...

  • Media And Revolutionby Jeremy D. Popkin

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    As television screens across America showed Chinese students blocking government tanks in Tiananmen Square, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and missiles searching their targets in Baghdad, the connection between media and revolution seemed more significant than ever. In this book, thirteen prominent scholars examine the role of the communication media... more...

  • The Newspaper Press in Kentuckyby Herndon J. Evans

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 28.00

    The story of Kentucky's newspapers is the story of our political, economic, and social life. It is the story of issues and answers, the story of life and death. Newspapers, by their very nature, become sources of historical studies. They recount day by day or week by week the happenings, joyous or sorrowful, humorous or sad, enlightening or dull,... more...

  • Albert Shaw of the Review of Reviewsby Lloyd J. Graybar

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The life of Albert Shaw (1857-1947) reflected in microcosm the changes that American society was undergoing through a critical period. This first full-length study focuses on two themes: Shaw's career as editor and publisher of the Review of Reviews , an influential monthly journal in the early years of the twentieth century, and Shaw's career as... more...

  • Barry Binghamby Barry Bingham

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Barry Bingham, Sr., was one of this country's most influential journalists. Under his half-century of leadership, the Louisville Courier-Journal became one of America's leading newspapers, as attested by six Pulitzer Prizes. In this illuminating oral history, Samuel Thomas weaves together excerpts from more than a dozen interviews with Bingham,... more...

  • The Shriek of Silenceby David Patterson

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    "In the Holocaust novel, silence is always a character, and the word is always its subject matter." So writes David Patterson in this profound and original study of more than thirty important writers. Contrary to existing views, he argues, the Holocaust novel is not an attempt to depict an unimaginable reality or an ineffable horror. It is, rather,... more...

  • Bicycles, Bangs, and Bloomersby Patricia Marks

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The so-called "New Woman" -- that determined and free-wheeling figure in "rational" dress, demanding education, suffrage, and a career-was a frequent target for humorists in the popular press of the late nineteenth century. She invariably stood in contrast to the "womanly woman," a traditional figure bound to domestic concerns and a stereotype away... more...

  • Heteronormativity in Eighteenth-Century Literature and Cultureby Ana de Freitas Boe; Abby Coykendall

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 104.95

    Understanding heteronormativity is imperative for understanding the culture of the eighteenth century writ large, as well as the imaginaries of sex and sexuality that it bequeaths to the present. This collection foregrounds British, European, and transatlantic heteronormativities to pose vital, if vexing, questions about the degree of continuity subsisting... more...
