ANGENOT, Marc, Les Dehors de la littrature. Du roman populaire la sciencef i c t i o n , Paris, Champion, (UnichampEssentiel), 2013, 264 pages. Les tudes littraires sont le seul domaine des ainsi nommes "sciences humaines" qui commence en cartant - sans jamais s'interroger sur cette mise l'cart prjudicielle - quatre-vingt-dix pour cent et plus de ce qui peut sembler son objet naturel. Dans les deux sicles modernes, l'crasante majorit de ce qui s'est donn pour des "romans", ne serait-ce que par cette mention sur la page de titre, de mme que les textes versifis en leur masse se trouvent exclus de toute prise en considration avant de commencer. Il en va de mme pour une part plus massive encore du texte dramatique, de Pixrcourt et du mlodrame romantique au thtre de boulevard. Marc Angenot explore ici certains secteurs de ces dehors de la littrature canonique en recueillant divers essais qui portent sur les genres, les thmatiques et les formes les plus dvalus de ce Grand Dchet. Il se place sous l'invocation d'un personnage benjaminien, celui qui va chercher du rcuprable, du " gaspill " dans les gravats et les champs d'pandage : le Crocheteur.

However soaked in blood its history and no matter how unsettling its social conditions and poverty, Asia has never lost its irresistible attraction or mystic. It has long been an inspiration for Western novelists, so much so that more than 5000 novels have been set in Asia in the English language alone. Storied names like Rudyard Kipling, Joseph Conrad, Pearl S. Buck, George Orwell, Graham Greene, E.M. Forster and many more have used their experiences in Asia as a vibrant backdrop for some of the world's most famous works of literature.

Since the show's debut in 2007, Mad Men has invited viewers to immerse themselves in the lush period settings, ruthless Madison Avenue advertising culture, and arresting characters at the center of its 1960s fictional world. Mad Men, Mad World is a comprehensive analysis of this groundbreaking TV series. Scholars from across the humanities consider the AMC drama from a fascinating array of perspectives, including fashion, history, architecture, civil rights, feminism, consumerism, art, cinema, and the serial format, as well as through theoretical frames such as critical race theory, gender, queer theory, global studies, and psychoanalysis.

KENNEDY-KARPAT, Colleen, Rogues, Romances and Exoticism in French Cinema of the 1930s, Madison, Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2013, 215 pages. Many popular French films of the 1930s captured the world and brought it into neighborhood cinemas for filmgoers who craved adventure. These films often served as visual postcards from the French empire, which enjoyed an unprecedented visibility in domestic popular culture between the world wars. But the public appetite for the exotic also transcended imperial borders. Exoticist films displayed landscapes and different that lay beyond the metropole, many of which were not subject to European rule. Rogues, Romance, and Exoticism in French Cinema of the 1930s proposes a critical framework for exoticist cinema that includes and exceeds the limits of empire. From rogue colons to the mtisse in love, from the deserts of North Africa to the streets of Shanghai, this book identifies and analyzes recurring figures, common settings, major stars, plot devices, and narrative outcomes that dominated exoticist cinema at its popular peak.

McCABE, Janet & Kim AKASS (eds.), TVs Betty Goes Global : from Telenovela to International Brand, London & New York, I. B. Tauris, 2013, xv, 259 pages. Premiering in 2006, the stylish and award winning US hit show Ugly Betty, about kindhearted ugly duckling Betty Suarez (America Ferrera), is the latest incarnation of a truly global phenomenon that started life as a Colombian telenovela, Yo soy Betty, la fea, back in 1999. The tale has since taken an extraordinary journey around the globe, from the original Colombian Beatriz, Indian Jassi, Chinese Wudi and Israeli Esti to the Flemish Sara, Spanish Bea, Greek Maria and Dutch Lotte as well as Czech Katka, Russian Katka and Turkish Gnl. This groundbreaking book about how television formats go global asks what the Betty phenomenon can tell us about the international circulation of locally produced TV fictions as the Latin American telenovela is sold to, and/or re-made for, different national contexts. McKAY, James, The Films of Victor Mature, Jefferson (NC), McFarland, 2013, 213 pages. With his rugged features and earthy sex appeal, Victor Mature ushered in a new breed of postwar Hollywood actor, far removed from the debonair matinee idols of the 1930s. Following success as an upbeat leading man in the early 1940s Fox musicals, opposite the likes of Betty Grable and Rita Hayworth, he went on deliver two of his most powerful performances in My Darling Clementine (1946) and Kiss of Death (1947). But it was in the biblical epics such as Samson and Delilah (1949), The Robe (1953) and Demetrius and the Gladiators (1954) that his heartfelt acting and statuesque, larger than life screen presence finally secured his place as a Hollywood icon. Beginning with a concise biography, this work covers Matures film career in its entirety, featuring synopses, anecdotes from cast and crew, and review commentary. MILBERG, Doris, The Art of the Screwball Comedy : Madcap Entertainment from the 1930s to Today, Jefferson (NC), McFarland, 2013, 200 pages. Part One of this entertaining exploration of screwball comedies and their later offspring begins in the mid-1930s discussing the careers of popular stars such as Cary Grant and Carole Lombard and well-known supporting players like Walter Connally and Ralph Bellamy (also Asta the dog, top animal star of the 1930s!). Writers and directors are given their due: Frank

Capra, Howard Hawks and Preston Sturges, just to name a few.__Part Two, the meat of the book, takes an in depth look at the films, from the genres inception (1934s It Happened One Night) to the recent 2003 Down with Love, and the stars that appear in them--Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert, Julia Roberts, Richard Gere-ending with some thoughts about the future.

SAUVAGE, Clia, Critiquer Quentin Tarantino est-il raisonnable ? , Paris, J, Vrin, (Philosophie et cinma), 2013, 120 pages. Comment expliquer tout la fois la ftichisation du cinaste amricain, Quentin Tarantino, et la polmique qui entoure la sortie de chacun de ses films ? La rception trs passionne de son cinma invite se poser la question : critiquer Quentin Tarantino est-il raisonnable ? La qualit de ses films ne peut suffire expliquer elle seule les ractions diverses, contradictoires et polmiques. Le traitement de faveur tout comme la dprciation systmatique du cinma de Tarantino mritent ainsi dtre rinterrogs.

Mdecin, crivain, spcialiste des sries tlvises, il nen fallait pas plus pour que Martin Winckler, le romancier de La maladie de Sachs, se penche sur le cas du Dr House qui, ltonnement ou leffarement de tlspectateurs scotchs leurs petits crans durant huit saisons, a pratiqu au service (selon le jargon du mtier) des moutons cinq pattes , chez les patients au diagnostic difficile.

Mais derrire les questions de pouvoir et de survie se joue avant tout un art de la mise en scne des corps : corps souffrants, fbriles, humilis, mais aussi corps qui sduquent et sarticulent avec un groupe. Brisant la bidimensionnalit de lcran cinmatographique, Kurosawa inscrit la tension des muscles, le surplus de la chair et du physiologique au coeur de limage et donne voir lengendrement du corps social partir de la diversit des corps physiques. Avec une grande conomie de mots, il construit une allgorie de linstitution sociale et politique qui fait varier trs subtilement les relations interindividuelles uniquement par le traitement de lespace et des corps. Les Sept Samouras est un film chorgraphique. ZUCKER, Carole, Neil Jordan : Interviews, Jackson, University Press of Mississippi, (Conversations with Filmmakers), 2013, 192 pages.

LITTRATURE
CARLSTON, Erin G., Double Agents : Espionage, Literature, and Liminal Citizen, New York, Columbia University Press, 352 pages. Why were white bourgeois gay male writers so interested in spies, espionage, and treason in the twentieth century? Erin G. Carlston believes such figures and themes were critical to exploring citizenship and its limits, requirements, and possibilities in the modern Western state. Through close readings of Marcel Proust's novels, W. H. Auden's poetry, and Tony Kushner's play Angels in America, which all reference real-life espionaage cases involving Jews, homosexuals, or Communists, Carlston connects gay men's fascination with spying to larger debates about the making and contestation of social identity.

Verlag, 2012, 307 pages. Auch fr den Krimi gilt: Der Westen Europas kennt den Osten selten gut dennoch ist er von ihm fasziniert. Neben westlichen Krimis werden immer mehr Geschichten aus dem Osten gelesen, die dort oder hier geschrieben werden. Breslau, Budapest, Kiew, Moskau, Prag, Triest und Zagreb werden zu Krimi-Schaupltzen. Fr jede dieser Stdte wird eine spezifische Topographie des Verbrechens produziert, die zwischen historischer, mythischer und touristischer Darstellung schwankt.

DRALYUK, Boris, Western Crime Fiction Goes East : The Russian Pinkerton Craze, 1 9 0 7 - 1 0 3 4 , Leiden, Brill, 2012, (Russian History and Culture), xiv, 182 pages. This book examines the staggering popularity of early-twentieth-century Russian detective serials. Traditionally maligned as Pinkertonovshchina, these appropriations of American and British detective stories featuring Nat Pinkerton, Nick Carter, Sherlock Holmes, Ethel King, and scores of other sleuths swept the Russian reading market in successive waves between 1907 and 1917, and famously experienced a red resurgence in the 1920s under the aegis of Nikolai Bukharin. The book presents the first holistic view of Pinkertonovshchina as a phenomenon, and produces a working model of cross-cultural appropriation and reception.

A scan of today's television programming reveals numerous media stories, factual and fictional, featuring some aspect of crime. These depictions can stray far from reality, with the effect of creating and reinforcing distorted impressions. This collection offers a sociological analysis of race, class, and gender stereotypes within crime media. Essays discuss particular examples of inequalities and stereotypes, consider the implications of such portrayals, and demonstrate how they influence the public's expectations and beliefs about realworld crime.

In Michael Mann: Crime Auteur, Steven Rybin looks at the television programs and films that Mann has stamped with his personal signature. This book closely examines the themes and techniques used in films such as Manhunter, Heat, The Insider, and Collateral and connects these elements to his work on the non-genre films The Last of the Mohicans and Ali. A revised and significantly expanded edition of The Cinema of Michael Mann (2007), this book includes new chapters on Public Enemies and the big screen version of Miami Vice, as well as Manns work on the shows Crime Story and Luck. Covering Manns entire career, this book will be of interest to fans of the writer/directors body of work as well as to scholars of both film and television. SORRENTO, Matthew, The New American Crime Film, Jefferson (NC), McFarland, 2013, 222 pages. Prface de Stuart Gordon. The most pervasive genre in contemporary cinema, the American crime film has recently enjoyed a new surge of popularity and proliferation. Though these innovative films now tackle topical issues, they continue to reference the classic narratives and archetypes established in the great crime pictures of past decades. The titles explored in this critical survey span many themes that have fused with other genres to create fascinating filmic hybrids. Focusing on character and plot construction, the author highlights the gangster and film noir traditions that still run strongly through recent American cinema. Among the many filmmakers analyzed within these pages are David Lynch, Gus Van Sant, David Mamet, Werner Herzog, Sam Raimi, David Cronenberg and the Coen Brothers. Stuart Gordon, director of the cult classic ReA n i m a t o r , provides the lively and incisive foreword.

VINT, Sherryl, The Wire, Detroit, Wayne State University Press, (TV Milestones), 2013, 136 pages. Frequently described by creator David Simon as a novel for television, The Wire redefined the police serial format by unfolding its narrative across many episodes, constructing themes for each of its seasons, and refusing to portray individual crimes outside of their social context. While it never achieved spectacular ratings or won an Emmy during its 2002-2008 run on HBO, the show was honored with

several awards and has been described by critics as the best show on television. In this volume, author Sherryl Vint takes a close look at several episodes of The Wire to argue that the series challenges our understanding of the relationship between entertainment and social critique. Informed by recent work on race, poverty, and the transformation of the American inner city through neoliberalism, Vint provides a compelling analysis of The Wire in four chapters. First, she examines the season 1 episode "The Buys" as an example of the ways in which The Wire diverges from the police procedural format. She continues by considering season 2's "All's Prologue" and season 3's "Middle Ground" to explore in more detail The Wire's critique of the exclusions of the capitalist economy. In the final two chapters, she looks at "Final Grades," the fourth season finale, to highlight the problems with institutional inertia and show both the need for and barriers to reform, and uses the season 5 episode "Clarifications" to consider the failure of the media to adequately reflect the social issues depicted in The Wire. One of the landmark series of recent television history, The Wire is ripe for research and discussion. Fans of the series and those interested in social commentary and the media will appreciate Vint's new analysis in this volume.

Doan (eds.), The Universal Vampire : Origins and Evolution of a Legend, Madison, Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2013, 262 pages. A major question exists within vampire scholarship: to what extent is this creature a product of European cultural forms, or is the vampire indeed a universal, perhaps even archetypal figure? In this collection of sixteen original essays, the editors shed light on this question. One essay traces the origins of the legend to the early medieval Norse draugr, an undead creature who reflects the underpinnings of Dracula, the latter first appearing as a vampire in Anglo-Irish Bram Stokers novel, Dracula, published in 1897. In addition to these investigations of the Western mythic, literary and historic traditions, other essays in this volume move outside Europe to explore vampire figures in Native American and Mesoamerican myth and ritual, as well as the existence of similar vampiric traditions in Japanese, Russian and Latin American art, theatre, literature, film and other cultural productions. BUDGE, Gavin, Romanticism, Medicine and the Natural Supernatural : Transcendent Vision and Bodily Spectres, 1789-1852, New York, Palgrave Macmillan, 2013, 295 pages.

Romanticism, Medicine and the Natural Supernatural explores the relationship between the Romantic preoccupation with visionary kinds of experience and early nineteenth-century medical theories of hallucination and the nerves, placing it in the context of accounts of perception in philosophical empiricism. Starting with an examination of Ann Radcliffe's Gothic narrative, and the canonical Romanticism of Wordsworth and Coleridge, the book goes on to examine the persistence of this medical topos of hallucination and the visionary in mid nineteenth-century writers influenced by Romanticism, such as Harriet Martineau and Harriet Beecher Stowe. The book concludes with a discussion of how the pathological language employed in early debates about PreRaphaelite painting reflects this Romantic conception of the interrelationship between nervous strain, hallucination and vision.

DE BENI, Matteo, Lo fantastico en escena : formas de lo imposible en el teatro espanol contemporaneo, Pontevedra, Academia del Hispanismo, 2012, 275 pages. Prface de Paola Abrosi & Jeus Rubio Jimenez. This book explores the fantastic in the panorama of contemporary Spanish theater from Ramon del Valle-Inclan until today. In trying to label criticism as slick as "fantastic", we should clarify that sense applies to that end: this is the purpose of the first chapter, which defines this category as a literary form and not as a genre, and outlines besides its host (or rather, its rejection) in the intellectual and literary environment of nineteenth-century Spain.

From the first illustrated edition of Jules Vernes Journey to the Center of the Earth in 1867, dinosaurs and prehistory have fascinated readers. Writers would time and again come back to dinosaurs as an element of fantastic fiction, often using these creatures--through the venue of the written word--to reflect the world of the writers own time.__This literary survey examines how "paleoliterature" originated, developed and matured to the present day. Also discussed are the ways in which dinosaur fiction mirrors contemporary ideas about subjects such as geology, the Cold War, environmentalism, time travel, evolution and bioengineering.__Featured authors include Ray Bradbury, H.G. Wells, and Poul Anderson, among others. In select cases, the novelizations of movie scripts are also examined. An appendix provides brief summaries of deserving dinosaur texts.

DOUTHWAITE, Julia V., The Frankenstein of 1790 and other Lost Chapters from Revolutionary France, Chicago, University of Chicago Press, 2012, 317 pages. The French Revolution brings to mind violent mobs, the guillotine, and Madame Defarge, but it was also a publishing revolution: more than 1,200 novels were published between 1789 and 1804, when Napoleon declared the Revolution at an end. In this book, Julia V. Douthwaite explores how the works within this enormous corpus announced the new shapes of literature to come and reveals that vestiges of these stories can be found in novels by the likes of Mary Shelley, E. T. A. Hoffmann, Honor de Balzac, Charles Dickens, Gustave Flaubert, and L. Frank Baum.

In the mid-1980s, Easton Press began publishing a series of leather-bound collector editions called Masterpieces of Science Fiction and Masterpieces of Fantasy, which featured some of the most important works in these genres. James Gunn was commissioned to write introductions to these works, which allowed him to pay tribute to many authors who inspired and influenced his own work. In Paratexts: Introductions to Science Fiction and Fantasy , Gunn has collected the most significant essays produced for the Easton series, along with prefaces he wrote for reprints of his own novels. Cited here are some of the most significant works of 19th and 20th century science fiction and fantasy, such as The Island of Dr. Moreau, 1984 , Stranger in a Strange Land , A Clockwork Orange, Speaker for the Dead, The Postman, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe , The Dead Zone, The Mists of Avalon , Dragons Eye, Nine Princes in Amber, Blue Mars, The Last Unicorn, and The Lord of the Rings.

KERR, Greg, Dream Cities : Utopias and Prose by Poets in Nineteenth-Century France , London, Legenda, (Legenda Main Series), 2013, 250 pages. To a backdrop of dizzying urbanization, French utopian thinkers of the nineteenth century set out to explore the transformative possibilities of the modern metropolis. Linking literary analyses with diverse strands of cultural and intellectual history, this study considers how the utopian vision of the city in turn came to impinge on prose writing by poets: in SaintSimonian literature, and in texts by Thophile Gautier, Charles Baudelaire and Arthur Rimbaud. At points steeped in the hyperbolic rhetoric of utopian projects, these texts nonetheless wear away at the internal coherence of that rhetoric and the idealizing meanings it supports.

"new wave in science fiction." Critics called it "dangerous nonsense" and labeled its fans the lunatic fringe. Whatever else the Shaver Mystery was, it became a worldwide sensation between 1945 and 1948, one of the greatest controversies to hit the science fiction genre. Today these stories of the remnants of a sinister ancient civilization living in caverns under the Earth are an all but forgotten sidebar to the historical record. The Shaver Mystery began as a series of science fiction yarns in Amazing Stories nearly 70 years ago. The men behind it, Ray Palmer and Richard Shaver, were derided and seldom understood by a fandom that did its best to sweep them under the carpet of history. Though Ray Palmer was one of the earliest and biggest names in SF fandom, credited with many firsts in his field, his fannish brethren have roundly ignored him, thanks to the Shaver Mystery. What is the truth behind these men and their "mystery"? This is the question writers and editors that promoted the Shaver Mystery try to answer as they reveal the behind-the-scenes story of the phenomenon known as "Shaverism."

THURSTON, Luke, Literary Ghosts from the Victorians to Modernism : The Haunting Interval , New York, Routledge, 2012, 186 pages. This book resituates the ghost story as a matter of literary hospitality and as part of a vital prehistory of modernism, seeing it not as a quaint neo-gothic ornament, but as a powerful literary response to the technological and psychological disturbances that marked the end of the Victorian era. Linking little-studied authors like M. R. James and May Sinclair to such canonical figures as Dickens, Henry James, Woolf, and Joyce, Thurston argues that the literary ghost should be seen as no mere relic of gothic style but as a portal of discovery, an opening onto the central modernist problem of how to write life itself. Ghost stories are split between an ironic, often parodic reference to Gothic style and an evocation of life itself, an implicit repudiation of all literary style. Reading the ghost story as both a guest and a host story, this book traces the ghost as a disruptive figure in the hospitable space of narrative from Maturin, Poe and Dickens to the fin de sicle, and then on into the twentieth century.

WITTENBERG, David, Time Travel : The Popular Philosophy of Narrative, New York, Fordham University Press, 2013, ix, 306 pages.

The book covers work by well-known time travel writers such as H. G. Wells, Edward Bellamy, Robert Heinlein, Samuel Delany, and Harlan Ellison, as well as pulp fiction writers of the 1920s through the 1940s, popular and avant-garde postwar science fiction, television shows such as The Twilight Zone and Star Trek, and current cinema. Literature, film and TV are read alongside theoretical work ranging from Einstein, Schrdinger, and Hawking to Grard Genette, David Lewis, and Gilles Deleuze. Wittenberg argues that even the most mainstream audiences of popular time travel fiction and cinema are vigorously engaged with many of the same questions about temporality, identity, and history that concern literary theorists, media and film scholars, and philosophers. WRIGHT, Angela, Britain, France and the Gothic, 1764-1820 : The Import of Terror, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013, 231 pages. In describing his proto-Gothic fiction, The Castle of Otranto (1764), as a translation, Horace Walpole was deliberately playing on national anxieties concerning the importation of war, fashion and literature from France in the aftermath of the Seven Years' War. In the last decade of the eighteenth century, as Britain went to war again with France, this time in the wake of revolution, the continuing connections between Gothic literature and France through the realms of translation, adaptation and unacknowledged borrowing led to strong suspicions of Gothic literature taking on a subversive role in diminishing British patriotism. Angela Wright explores the development of Gothic literature in Britain in the context of the fraught relationship between Britain and France, offering fresh perspectives on the works of Walpole, Radcliffe, 'Monk' Lewis and their contemporaries. WYATT, John, The Use of Imaginary, Historical and Actual Maps in Literature : How British and Irish Authors Created Imaginary Worlds to Tell Their Stories, Lewiston, Edwin Mellen Press, 2013, 386 pages. In this text, the author highlights unrecorded discoveries about how maps and literature are associated. Not only do maps give us a tool by which to understand a physical reality as it actually exists, but maps can support the realm of literary fiction such as Tolkiens Middle Earth, or Stevensons Treasure Island. There are also maps that try to catch a certain historical moment like an urban space at a

22

particular time period, or a rural environment. While maps had historically guided travel, in literature they provide an escape mechanism that transports the audience to an unfamiliar place. Maps can create images that color the contours of the readers imagination, thereby fortifying the creativity of the story being told. Is there a verisimilitude where the authors are trying to realistically depict a scene as it actually exists, or does the story try to create a magical fantasy world conjured up out of thin air? The use of maps gives an array of options, and the story can hinge on what kind of setting the author creates through their employment. ZIEGLER, Robert, Satanism, Magic and Mysticism in fin-de-sicle France, New York, Palgrave Macmillan, 2012, 229 pages. An interdisciplinary study of the supernatural and the occult in fin-de-sicle France (18701914), the present volume examines the explosion of interest in devil-worship, magic and mysticism both from a historical perspective and through analysis of key literary works of the period.

CALLAGHAN, Gavin, H. P. Lovecrafts Dark Arcadia, Jefferson (NC), McFarland, 2013, 288 pages. This volume attempts an objective reassessment of the controversial works and life of American horror writer H. P. Lovecraft. Ignoring secondary accounts and various received truths, Gavin Callaghan goes back to the weird texts themselves, and follows where Lovecraft leads him: into an arcane world of parental giganticism and inverted classicism, in which Lovecrafts parental obsessions were twisted into the all-powerful cosmic monsters of his imaginary cosmology.

Entre la rdaction de Vingt mille lieues sous les mers et Autour de la Lune, Jules Verne avait t sollicit par son diteur Hetzel pour remanier un livre crit par le romancier et journaliste anglais James Greenwood (1832-1929) et illustr par le Franais Ernest _Griset (1843-1907), dont les aventures dbrides paraissaient premire vue bien compatibles avec celles des Voyages extraordinaires .

HARMAN, Graham, Weird Realism : Lovecraft and Philosophy, Winchester Zero Books, 2012, 268 pages. Lovecraft was one of the brightest stars of the horror and science fiction magazines, but died in poverty and relative obscurity in the 1930s. In 2005 he was finally elevated from pulp status to the classical literary canon with the release of a Library of America volume dedicated to his work. The impact of Lovecraft on philosophy has been building for more than a decade. Initially championed by shadowy guru Nick Land at Warwick during the 1990s, he was later discovered to be an object of private fascination for all four original members of the twenty-first century Speculative Realist

25

movement. In this book, Graham Harman extracts the basic philosophical concepts underlying the work of Lovecraft, yielding a weird realism capable of freeing continental philosophy from its current soul-crushing impasse. Abandoning pious references by Heidegger to Hlderlin and the Greeks, Harman develops a new philosophical mythology centered in such Lovecraftian figures as Cthulhu, Wilbur Whately, and the rat-like monstrosity Brown Jenkin. The Miskatonic River replaces the Rhine and the Ister, while Hlderlin's Caucasus gives way to Lovecraft's Antarctic mountains of madness.

ARNOLD, Sarah, Maternal Horror Film : Melodrama and Motherhood , New York, Palgrave Macmillan, 2013, 216 pages. Horror film is particularly prone to articulating fears and tensions about maternal figures, and reflects cultural apprehensions concerning the changing nature of motherhood. Via predominantly US and European case studies, Maternal Horror Film: Melodrama and Motherhood establishes a framework for understanding two dominant representations of motherhood: selfsacrificing and demonic. Building on this, Arnold investigates how discourses of motherhood exist within East Asian horror texts using popular recent horror films to illustrate. Historical and contemporary case studies include Psycho (1960), Poltergeist (1985), Invasion (2007), Ringu (1998), The Others (2001), Dark Water (2003), and The Seventh Sign (1988).

FRANCIS, James Jr., Remaking Horror : Hollywoods New Reliance on Scares of Old, Jefferson (NC), McFarland, 2013, vii, 214 pages. This book chronicles the American horror film genre in its development of remakes from the 1930s into the 21st century. Gus Van Sants 1998 remake of Alfred Hitchcocks P s y c h o

(1960) is investigated as the watershed moment when the genre opened its doors to the possibility that any horror movie--classic, modern, B-movie, and more--might be remade for contemporary audiences.__Staple horror franchises--Halloween (1978), Friday the 13th (1980), and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)--are highlighted along with their remake counterparts in order to illustrate how the genre has embraced a phenomenon of remake productions and what the future of horror holds for American cinema. More than 25 original films, their remakes, and the movies they influenced are presented in detailed discussions throughout the text.

New Vampire Cinema examines forty modern classic vampire films from 1992 to the present day, responding to this remarkably long-lasting example of genre cinema.

and inclusive aspects of American culture. Arnaudo asserts that, amidst the exciting action, tender love stories, and tales of selfsacrifice, superheroes are role models for tolerance and moral decision making. Translated for the first time into English, The Myth of the Superhero looks beyond the cape, the mask, and the superpowers, presenting a serious study of the genre and its place in a broader cultural context.

A refugee from his broken planet who saves earth (more than once), Superman was sent to America as his fathers final act before dying. Does this make him the ultimate immigrant success story? Disillusioned with a crime-filled world, Bruce Wayne seeks guidance from a shaman and transforms himself into the flawlessly moral Batman. Through a series of close readings of DC and Marvel comics, Marco Arnaudo explores the influence of religion and myth on superhero stories as well as their relationship to the classical epic and baroque style.Superheroes embody the most positive

McKINNEY, Mark, Redrawing French Empire in Comics, Columbus, Ohio State University Press, (Studies in Comics and Cartoons), 2013, 304 pages. Redrawing French Empire in Comics by Mark McKinney investigates how comics have represented the colonization and liberation of Algeria and Indochina. It focuses on the conquest and colonization of Algeria (from 1830), the French war in Indochina (19461954), and the Algerian War (19541962). Imperialism and colonialism already featured prominently in nineteenthcentury French-language comics and cartoons by Tpffer, Cham, and Petit. Redrawing French Empire in Comics shows how contemporary cartoonists such as Alagb, Baloup, Boudjellal, Ferrandez, and Sfar have staked out different, sometimes conflicting, positions on French colonial history.

PHILLIPS, Nickie D. & Staci STROBL, Comic Book Crime : Truth, Justice and the American W a y , New York, New York University Press, 2013, 320 pages. Through an analysis of approximately 200 comic books sold from 2002 to 2010, as well as several years of immersion in comic book fan culture, Phillips and Strobl reveal the kinds of themes and plots popular comics feature in a post-9/11 context. They discuss heroes calculations of deathworthiness, or who should be killed in meting out justice, and how these judgments have as much to do with the heros character as they do with the actions of the villains. This fascinating volume also analyzes how class, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation are used to construct difference for both the heroes and the villains in ways that are both conservative and progressive. Engaging, sharp, and insightful, Comic Book Crime is a fresh take on the very meaning of truth, justice, and the American way. ROMAGNOLI, Alex S. & Gian S. PAGNUCCI, Enter the Superheroes.

Pagnucci argue that superheroes merit serious study, both within the academy and beyond. By examining the kinds of graphic novels that are embraced by the academy, this book explains how superhero stories are just as significant. Structured around key themes within superhero literature, the book delves into the features that make superhero stories a unique genre. The book also draws upon examples in comics and other media to illustrate the sociohistorical importance of superheroesfrom the interplay of fans and creators to unique narrative elements that are brought to their richest fulfillment within the world of superheroes. A list of noteworthy superhero texts that readers can look to for future study is also provided. USCHAN, Michael V., Comic Art, Detroit, Lucent Books, 2013, 112 pages.

WESTERNS
BRODE, Douglas, Dream West : Politics and Religion in Cowboy Movies , Austin, University of Texas Press, 2013, 362 pages. Examining dozens of Westerns, including Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, Red River, 3:10 to Yuma (old and new), The Wild Ones , High Noon , My Darling Clementine, The Alamo, and No Country for Old Men , Brode demonstrates that the genre (with notable exceptions that he fully covers) was the product of Hollywood liberals who used it to project a progressive agenda on issues such as gun control, environmental protection, respect for non-Christian belief systems, and community cohesion versus rugged individualism. Challenging us to rethink everything we thought we knew about the genre, Brode argues that the Western stands for precisely the opposite of what most people todaywhether they love it or hate itbelieve to be the essential premise of the only truly, authentically, and uniquely American narrative form.

Holocaust Impiety in Literature, Popular Music and Film is an account of provocative and controversial representations of the Holocaust. Many wellknown artists have attracted criticism for approaching the Nazi genocide in ways that have been deemed ill-conceived or offensive. Examples include Sylvia Plath's notorious claim that 'Every woman adores a Fascist' in her poem 'Daddy' and songs such as 'Belsen Was a Gas' by the Sex Pistols. The Holocaust has even provided material for stand-up comedy and gory Hollywood blockbusters such as Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.

EROTICA
BROMLEY, James M. & Will STOCKTON (eds.), Sex Before Sex : Figuring the Act in Early Modern Britain , Minneapolis, University of Minnesota Press, 2013, vii, 329 pages. Drawing attention to overlooked forms of sexual activity in early modern culture, from anilingus and interspecies sex to chinchucking and convivial drinking, Sex before Sex offers a multifaceted view of what sex looked like before the term entered history. Through incisive interpretations of a wide range of literary texts, including Romeo and Juliet, The Comedy of Errors, Paradise Lost , the figure of Lucretia, and pornographic poetry, this

35

collection queries what might constitute sex in the absence of a widely accepted definition and how a historicized concept of sex affects the kinds of arguments that can be made about early modern sexualities.Contributors: Holly Dugan, George Washington U; Will Fisher, CUNYLehman College; Stephen Guy-Bray, U of British Columbia; Melissa J.
