  • ...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. This collection of new essays considers the implications of this scientifically impossible (but perhaps imminent) event, examining real-world responses to pandemic contagion and civic chaos, as well as those from Hollywood... more...

  • "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...

  • "Daddy's Gone to War"by William M. Jr. Tuttle

    Oxford University Press 1993; US$ 44.99

    Looking out a second-story window of her family's quarters at the Pearl Harbor naval base on December 7, 1941, eleven-year-old Jackie Smith could see not only the Rising Sun insignias on the wings of attacking Japanese bombers, but the faces of the pilots inside. Most American children on the home front during the Second World War saw the enemy only... more...

  • "Es muss eine Ambivalenz und ein Bruch her?by Katharina Derlin

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 15.13

    Musiker, Schauspieler, Kultfigur, Hamburger Pudelclubbesitzer - und inzwischen auch Autor. In den Medien wird Rocko Schamoni, geb. Tobias Albrecht, seit bereits 15 Jahren mal mehr, mal weniger wohlwollend rezipiert.

  • 'Geschlecht' in Literatur und Geschichteby Heinz Sieburg

    transcript 2014; US$ 35.68

    Mit dem Begriff »Geschlecht« rückt eine Dimension humaner Verfasstheit in den Blick, die in vielfältigster Weise Gegenstand unterschiedlicher literarischer, linguistischer, psychologischer oder auch soziologischer Zuschreibungen war und ist.

  • "Greed Is Good" and Other Fables: Office Life in Popular Cultureby Tony Osborne

    ABC-CLIO 2012; US$ 53.00

    The office in popular culture is often depicted as a topsy-turvy parallel universe where psychological disorders are legitimized as "managerial styles" and comically depraved bosses torment those who do the actual work. During the 1950s, the Beats chose denim and the open road over gray flannel suits and office jobs, but today their grandchildren?Generation... more...

  • "In Case Atom Bombs Fall"by Michael Scheibach

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2009; US$ 39.95

    With the very real possibility of nuclear war looming on the horizon from 1945 to the early 1960s, both federal and local governments took on the responsibility of educating Americans on how to survive the expected blasts, residual fallout, and radiation poisoning. Duck and cover drills, bomb shelters, and evacuation plans became an integral part of... more...

  • "March of the Mods":by Christiane Deibel

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 30.27

    A lot of academic writing on Mod culture has focused on the Mods' emergence in London in the late 1950s and their cultural practices. And it has also dealt with the role of the tabloid papers in creating an unprecedented hysteria, when Mods and Rockers attacked each other at English seaside resorts on Easter and Whitsun 1964. The participants' opinions,... more...

  • "Our Bums"by David Krell

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

    Baseball fans may know the story of the Brooklyn Dodgers, but they don't know the whole story. With a foreword by Branch Barrett Rickey (grandson of Branch Rickey), this book fills the void in Dodgers scholarship, exploring their impact on popular culture and revealing lesser-known details of the team's history.
