  • Sensational Fleshby Amber Jamilla Musser

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    In everyday language, masochism is usually understood as the desire to abdicate control in exchange for sensation—pleasure, pain, or a combination thereof. Yet at its core, masochism is a site where power, bodies, and society come together. Sensational Flesh uses masochism as a lens to examine how power structures race, gender, and embodiment... more...

  • Deutschsein (wieder-)herstellenby Maja Figge

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 53.00

    The early Federal Republic was characterized by efforts to (re)define what it might mean to be German after National Socialism. The German Cinema of the 1950s - long regarded as escapist, narrowed, and restorative - becomes the focus of attention in this book as the central location of national self-image negotiation. Starting from the consideration... more...

  • V/Erkennungsdienste, das Kino und die Perspektive der Migrationby Nanna Heidenreich

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 38.00

    Nanna Heidenreich sets the history-making power of film and the art of migration against the apparent ahistoricity with which migration in Germany is addressed. She illustrates how the juridical category of »foreigner« is indeed as stubborn as it is socially misunderstood, yet how the cinema enacts not just the recognition (and failed recognition)... more...

    Drawing on a range of new media sources, including websites, chat rooms, blogs and forums, this book explores the concerns expressed by advocates of white power, with regard to racial hierarchy and social order, the crisis of traditional American values, the perpetuation of liberal, feminist, elitist ideas, the degradation of the family and the fetishization... more...

  • The Last Best Placeby Leah Schmalzbauer

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 24.95

    Southwest Montana is beautiful country, evoking mythologies of freedom and escape long associated with the West.
