A volume in the Cultural Politics series. "For a long time arguments have been advanced, mostly in very general term s, about the power of the mass media, but one medium has attracted just about all the main kinds of claims about its effects: comics. This book systematically re-examines claims about media influence through the arguments over comics. There are case-studies on the Beano and other 'funnies', Jackie and romance, Action and 'violence', Bunty and 'fantasy', and Disney and cultural imperialism. In each case, the book both re-examines the theories and methods used, and returns to the origianl comics -- reproducing some for readers. Approaches to comics ranging from traditional 'effects' theory to post-structuralist analysis are tested; and concepts such as 'identification'and 'stereotype' systematically explored for the first time. Through these , a new theorisation of media power is formulated and tested. A book both for comic enthusiasts and for media analysts." - from the rear cover. Contents: 1. Thinking about ideology and comics; 2. Action: a suitable case for the treatment; 3. Understanding Action; 4. Ye 'orrible 'aunted 'house; 5. The vicissitudes of identiication; 6.

Pp (8),ix-xvi,(2),3-230,(2) + 16 pages of photoillustrations. 8vo, tan cloth, blue lettering to spine. "Sylvia Beach made literary history when, in 1922, she published James Joyce's Ulysses - then banned in every English-speaking country in the world - under the imprint of Shakespeare and Company, her American bookshop on the Left Bank. Not only Joyce, but most of the writers who were to make the twenties famous were then converging on Paris to live and work. They were all customers and callers at Shakespeare and Company, and the little bookshop at 12 rue de l'Odeon became the he humming center of the most significant literary movement ofour century. James Joyce is an important figure in Miss Beach's story. But he is only one of the distinguished and often merry company of writers and artists who come to life in this enchanting book. Here are vivid, informal portraits of Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, George Antheil, Bryher, Gertrud e Stein, Sherwood Anderson, Scott Fitzgerald; and of the French writers whowere also Miss Beach's friends and supporters - Paul Valéry, André Giide. Jules Romains. and many others. Shakespeare and Company is a unique record,written with gusto, humor and affection, of an important chapter in litera ry history. And from it emerges the portrait, unpremeditated. of a delightful American in Paris, Miss Beach herself." - front dj flap.
