  • Transatlantic Literature and Culture After 9/11by Kristine A. Miller

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 90.00

    Transatlantic Literature and Culture After 9/11 asks whether post-9/11 America has chosen the 'wrong side of paradise' by waging war on terror rather than working for global peace. Analyzing transatlantic literature and culture, the book refocuses our view of Ground Zero through the lenses of imperial power and cosmopolitan exchange. more...

  • T.S. Eliot?s Christmas Poemsby G. Douglas Atkins

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00

    This is the first full-scale analysis of T.S. Eliot's six "Ariel Poems" as Christmas poems. Through close readings, Atkins argues that these poems considered together emerge as clearly related representations of the "impossible union" that occurred in the Incarnation. more...

  • A Susan Sontag Readerby Susan Sontag

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 8.99

    Susan Sontag occupies a special place in Modern American letters. She has become our most important critic, while her brilliant novels and short fiction are, at long last, getting the recognition they deserve. Sontag is above all a writer, which is only to say that, though the form may differ, there is an essential unity in all her work. The truth... more...

  • So We Read Onby Maureen Corrigan

    Little, Brown and Company 2014; US$ 11.69

    The "Fresh Air" book critic investigates the enduring power of The Great Gatsby -- "The Great American Novel we all think we've read, but really haven't." Conceived nearly a century ago by a man who died believing himself a failure, it's now a revered classic and a rite of passage in the reading lives of millions. But how well do we really know... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 45.95

    Interrogating Popular Culture: Key Questions offers an accessible introduction to the study of popular culture, both historical and contemporary.

  • Cold War American Literature and the Rise of Youth Cultureby Denis Jonnes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Demands placed on many young Americans as a result of the Cold War give rise to an increasingly age-segregated society. This separation allowed adolescents and young adults to begin to formulate an identity distinct from previous generations, and was a significant factor in their widespread rejection of contemporary American society. This study... more...

  • The Transcription of Identitiesby Min Zhou

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 49.00

    Based on a study of V. S. Naipaul's postcolonial writings, this book explores the process of postcolonial subjects' special route of identification. This enables the readers to see how in our increasingly diverse and fragmented post-modern world, identity is a vibrant, complex, and highly controversial concept. The old notion of identity as a prescribed... more...

  • Resonant Alteritiesby Sylvia Mieszkowski

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 50.00

Ballard and a post-traumatic short novel by Don DeLillo. Each is discussed in relation to historically specific,... more...
