Ars Americana, Ars Politica: Partisan Expression in Contemporary American Literature and Culture

by

Ars Americana, Ars Politica: Partisan Expression in Contemporary American Literature and Culture Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As partisan attacks have become increasingly bitter in American politics, contemporary culture has found ways to channel this outrage into the outrageous, responding with comedy and satire from both sides of the political spectrum. Ars Americana, Ars Politica cross-examines American politics, culture, and history by examining Irving Wallace's The Man, Richard Condon's Death of a Politician, P.J. O'Rourke's Parliament of Whores, Warren Beatty's film Bulworth, and Michael Moore's Stupid White Men to show how these popular artists have used soap-box partisanship and box-office artertainment to affect history.

Synopsis:

A penetrating look at modern American politics and the partisan culture that feeds off its turmoil.

About the Author

Peter Swirski is a Professor of American literature and culture at UMSL and Research Fellow at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies.
