IMRE, Aniko, Timothy HAVENS & Katalin LUSTYIK (eds.), Popular Television in Eastern Europe during and since Socialism, London, Routledge, 2013, 285 pages. This collection of essays responds to the recent surge of interest in popular television in Eastern Europe. This is a region where television's transformation has been especially spectacular, shifting from a state-controlled broadcast system delivering national, regional, and heavily filtered Western programming to a deregulated, multi-platform, transnational system delivering predominantly American and Western European entertainment programming.

Nicholas Ray spent the glory years of his career creating films that were dark, emotionally charged, and haunted by social misfits and bruised young people consumed by private anguishfrom his career-defining debut, They Live by Night (1948), to his enduring masterwork, Rebel Without a Cause (1955); from the noir thriller In a Lonely Place (1950), pairing his second wife, the blond bombshell Gloria Grahame, with

Humphrey Bogart, to cult pictures like Johnny Guitar (1954) and Bigger Than Life (1956). Yet his work on-screen is more than matched by the passions and struggles of his personal storyone of the most dramatic lives of any major Hollywood filmmaker. McGOWAN, Todd, The Fictional Christopher Nolan, Austin, University of Texas Press, 2012, 242 pages. From Memento and Insomnia to the Batman films, The Prestige, and Inception, lies play a central role in every Christopher Nolan film. Characters in the films constantly find themselves deceived by others and are often caught up in a vast web of deceit that transcends any individual lies. The formal structure of a typical Nolan film deceives spectators about the events that occur and the motivations of the characters. While Nolan's films do not abandon the idea of truth altogether, they show us how truth must emerge out of the lie if it is not to lead us entirely astray.

BARR, Charles, Vertigo, London, BFI, ( BFI Classics), 2012, 104 pages. [nvle dition] Vertigo (1958) is widely regarded as not only one of Hitchcock's best films, but one of the greatest films of world cinema. Made at the time when the old studio system was breaking up, it functions both as an embodiment of the supremely seductive visual pleasures that 'classical Hollywood' could offer and with the help of an elaborate plot twist as a laying bare of their dangerous dark side. The film's core is a study in romantic obsession, as James Stewart's Scottie pursues Madeleine/Judy (Kim Novak) to her death in a remote Californian mission. Novak is ice cool but vulnerable, Stewart in the darkest role of his career genial on the surface but damaged within. CAVENDER, Gray & Nancy C.

[Nvle dition] Don't Look Now, released in 1973, confirmed director Nicolas Roeg as one of the most stylish and innovative British directors of the postwar period. Adapted from a short story by Daphne du Maurier, it is both a complex study of how people come to terms with grief and a chilling tale of murder set among the canals and churches of Venice. TAUBIN, Amy, Taxi Driver, London, BFI, (BFI Classics), 2012, 88 pages. [ Nvle dition] Scorsese transformed the script into what is now considered one of the two or three definitive films of the 1970s. De Niro is mesmerising as Travis Bickle pent-up, bigoted, steadily slipping into psychosis, the

personification of American masculinity postVietnam. Cybill Shepherd and Jodie Foster give fine support and Scorsese brought in Bernard Herrmann, the greatest of film composers, to write what turned out to be his last score. Crucially, Scorsese rooted Taxi Driver in its New York locations, tuning the film's violence into the hard reality of the city. Technically thrilling though it is, Taxi Driver is profoundly disturbing finding, as Amy Taubin shows, racism, misogyny and gun fetishism at the heart of American culture.

while evoking horror and repulsion. The label of cannibal has been used throughout history to denigrate a given individual or group. By examining who is labelled cannibal at any given time, we can understand the fears, prejudices, accepted norms and taboos of society at that time. From the cannibal in colonial literature, to the idea of regional Gothic and the hillbilly cannibal, to serial killers, this book examines works by writers and directors including Joseph Conrad, H.

Beginning with chapters on the First sf and New Wave authors who published during the 1970s, Solar Flares examines the ways in which the genre confronted a new epoch and its own history, including the rise of fantasy, the sf blockbuster, children's sf, pseudoscience and postmodernism. It explores significant figures such as Joanna Russ, Samuel R. Delany and Octavia Butler. From Larry Niven's Ringworld to Thomas M.

The Rise and Fall of the Femme Fatale: From Gothic Ghosts to Victorian Vamps explores the femme fatale's career in nineteenth-century British literature. It traces her evolution-and

devolution-formally, historically, and ideologically through a selection of plays, poems, novels, and personal correspondence. Considering well-known fatal women alongside more obscure ones, The Rise and Fall of the Femme Fatale sheds new light on emerging notions of gender, sexuality, and power throughout the long nineteenth century. By placing the fatal woman in a still developing literary and cultural narrative, this study examines how the femme fatale adapts over time, reflecting popular tastes and socioeconomic landscapes.

A travers de multiples exemples de posie, de fiction, de thtre et de cinma qui nous emmnent de Jean Giono Margaret Atwood, ce livre nous permet de mieux comprendre pourquoi, en dpit des peurs qu'ils suscitent, "nous aimons les monstres", selon les mots de Dominique Lestel, et comment les textes d'aujourd'hui rappellent ce qu'Ovide avait dj nonc : le changement est une condition ternelle de la vie.

KAPLAN, Matt, Medusas Gaze and Vampires Bite : The Science of Monsters, New York, Scribners, 2012, 256 pages. We all know theres no such thing as monsters, but our imaginations tell us otherwise. From the mythical beasts of ancient Greece to the hormonal vampires of the Twilight saga, monsters have captivated us for millennia. Matt Kaplan, a noted science journalist and monster-myth enthusiast, employs an entertaining mix of cutting-edge research and a love of lore to explore the history behind these fantastical fictions and our hardwired obsession with things that go bump in the night.

McAVAN, Emily, The Postmodern Sacred : Popular Spirituality in the Science Fiction, Fantasy and Urban Fantasy Genres, Jefferson (NC), McFarland, 2012, 194 pages. From The Matrix and Harry Potter to Stargate SG:1 and The X-Files, recent science fiction and fantasy offerings both reflect and produce a sense of the religious. This work examines this pop-culture spirituality, or "postmodern sacred," showing how consumers use the symbols contained in explicitly "unreal" texts to gain a secondhand experience of transcendence and belief. Topics include how media technologies like CGI have blurred the lines between real and unreal, the polytheisms of Buffy and Xena, the New Age Gnosticism of The DaVinci Code, the Islamic "Other" and science fictions response to 9/11, and the Christian Right and popular culture. MILLER, Gerard Alva, Exploring the Limits of the Human through Science Fiction, New York, Palgrave Macmillan, 2012, 240 pages. Exploring the Limits of the Human through Science Fiction examines the genre of science fiction as its own form of critical theory and argues that it proves crucial to understanding the human in the postmodern era. Featuring chapters on novels, films, and anime, Gerald Alva Miller, Jr.'s scholarship intervenes in a diverse array of theoretical schools, including gender theory, psychoanalysis, political theory, and posthumanism.

DAVIS (eds.), Utopian Moments : Reading Utopian Texts, London, New York, Bloombury Academic, 2012, xviii, 174 pages. Juxtaposing historical views on utopian diagnoses, prescriptions and on the character and value of utopian thought with more modern interpretations, this volume explores how our ideal utopia has transformed over time. Challenging long-held interpretations, the contributors turn a fresh eye to canonical texts, and open them up to a twenty-first century audience. From Moore's Utopia to Le Guin's The Dispossessed, Utopian Moments puts forward a lively and accessible debate on the nature and significance of utopian thought and tradition. ROBB, Brian J., Steampunk : An Illustrated History of Fantastical Fiction, Fanciful Films and Other Victorian Visions, Minneapolis, Voyageur Press, 2012, 192 pages. Steampunk is the hottest science fiction counterculture, alive in fantasy novels, films, arts and crafts, fashion, comic books, music, computer games, even architecture. Enter a world of Victorian technology, where steam power meets space travel. From Jules Verne and H. G. Wells to Alan Moore, Hayao Miyazaki, and Philip Pullman, the genre has captured imaginations around the globe. Heres the first grand, illustrated history of the counterculture movement in a book fittingly stylish in its design, package, and artwork. From the fastest dirigible and steam-powered ray guns to fashionistas Lady Gaga and Alexander McQueen, the whole story of the gaslight romance is here. SALER, Michael T., As If : Modern Enchantment and the Literary Pre-History of Virtual Reality, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2012, x, 283 pages. Many people throughout the world "inhabit" imaginary worlds communally and persistently,

parsing Harry Potter and exploring online universes. These activities might seem irresponsibly escapist, but history tells another story. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, when Sherlock Holmes became the world's first "virtual reality" character, readers began to colonize imaginary worlds, debating serious issues and viewing reality in provisional, "as if" terms rather than through essentialist, "just so" perspectives. From Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos and Tolkien's Middle-earth to the World of Warcraft and Second Life, As If provides a cultural history that reveals how we can remain enchanted but not deluded in an age where fantasy and reality increasingly intertwine. SEED, David (ed.), Future Wars : The Anticipations and the Fears, Liverpool, Liverpool University Press, (Liverpool Science Fiction Texts and Studies), 2012, 302 pages. This timely book investigates fiction that speculates about wars likely to break out in the near or distant future. Ranging widely across periods and conflicts real and imagined, Future Wars explores the interplay between politics, literature, science fiction, and war in a range of classic texts. Individual essays look at Reagans infamous Star Wars project, nuclear fiction, Martian invasion, and the Pax Americana. The use of future war scenarios in military planning dates back to the nineteenth century, and Future Wars concludes with a US Army officers assessment of the continuing usefulness of future.

examines the figure of the Gothic wanderer in such well-known Gothic novels as The Mysteries of Udolpho, Frankenstein, and Dracula, as well as lesser known works like Fanny Burneys The Wanderer, Mary Shelleys The Last Man, and Edward Bulwer-Lyttons Zanoni. He also finds surprising Gothic elements in classics like Dickens A Tale of Two Cities and Edgar Rice Burroughs Tarzan of the Apes. From Matthew Lewis The Monk to Stephenie Meyers Twilight, Tichelaar explores

a literary tradition whose characters refl ect our greatest fears and deepest hopes. Readers will find here the revelation that not only are we all Gothic wanderers--but we are so only by our own choosing.

BURGER, Alissa, The Wizard of Oz as Amercan Myth : A Critical Study of Six Versions of the Story, 1900-1007, Jefferson (NC), McFarland, 2012, x, 230 pages. Since the publication of L. Frank Baums The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900, authors, filmmakers, and theatrical producers have been retelling and reinventing this uniquely American fairy tale. This volume examines six especially significant incarnations of the story: Baums original novel, the MGM classic T h e Wizard of Oz (1939), Sidney Lumets African American film musical The Wiz (1978), Gregory Maguires novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (1995), Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzmans Broadway hit Wicked: A New Musical (2003), and the SyFy Channel miniseries Tin Man (2007). A close consideration of these works demonstrates how versions of Baums tale are influenced by and help shape notions of American myth, including issues of gender, race, home, and magic, and makes clear that the Wizard of Oz narrative remains compelling and relevant today.

In his beloved story, The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien takes readers into a world unlike any other, yet so much seems familiar. As Bilbo journeys there and back again, glimpses of the spiritual are seen. Previous guides to Tolkiens fiction have often made one of two wrong turnings: either they have entirely overlooked the Christian elements or they have claimed to find Christian elements everywhere, going far beyond the fundamental aspects that have been absorbed into the story. DICKERSON, Matthew T., A Hobbit Journey : Discovering the Enchantment of J.R.R. Tolkiens Middle Earth, Ada (MI), Brazos Press, 2012, 272 pages. In this engaging and thought-provoking book, Tolkien expert Matthew Dickerson shows how a Christian worldview and Christian themes undergird Tolkien's Middle-earth writings and how they are fundamentally important to understanding his vision. This revised and expanded edition of Following Gandalf includes new material on torture, social justice, and the importance of the body.

Journeying through fanzines, videogames, fanfiction, and more, Porter demonstrates how the hobbits, their characters, and their stories continue to introduce new audiences to Tolkien's work, in new and adapted forms.

BAROUD, Mahmoud, The Shipwrecked Sailor in Arabic and Western Literature : Ibn Tufayl and his Influence on European Writers, London, I.B. Tauris, 2012, 280 pages. From the ancient Egyptian tale of a Shipwrecked Sailor through to Sinbad and Robinson Crusoe, the stranded castaway living and philosophizing alone on a strange, desert island is a theme which has captured the imaginations of writers spanning cultures and millennia. Most familiar to Western literary historians is Daniel Defoes Robinson Crusoe, which inspired generations of writers from Jonathan Wyss and William Golding to Michel Tournier and J.M.Coetzee. However, little attention has been paid to Defoes antecedents, such as the remarkable HayyIbn Yaqzan by twelfth-century Arab physician and philosopher, Muhammad Ibn Tufayl. Mahmoud Baroud here conducts a detailed comparative textual analysis of Hayy Ibn Yaqzan and Robinson Crusoe, and concludes that Daniel Defoe was likely to have been deeply influenced by Ibn Tufayls Arabic text.

NAGAIKE, Kazumi, Fantasies of CrossDressing : Japanese Women Write MaleMale Erotica, Leiden & Boston, Brill, 2012, viii, 227 pages. This book represents the first extensive critical attempt to examine Japanese women's narratives of male homosexuality/ homoeroticism, addressing not only popular culture genres, but also the considerable body of critically acclaimed literary works (with English translations of the original works). PFEIFFER, Lee & Dave WORALL, Cinema Sex Sirens, London, Omnibus Press 2012, 160 pages. Cinema Sex Sirens centers around a select number of actresses who capitalized on their natural beauty during the 60s and 70s. They range from cinematic legends to some whose names are barely known by the general public. WEAVER-ZERCHER, Valerie, Thrill of the Chaste : The Allure of Amish Romance Novels, Baltimore, Johns Hopkins University Press, 2013, 336 pages. Romance novels with Amish protagonists, such as the best-selling trailblazer The Shunning by Beverly Lewis, are becoming increasingly popular with a largely evangelical female audience. Thrill of the Chaste is the first book to analyze this growing trend in romance fiction and to place it into the context of contemporary literature, religion, and popular culture. Valerie Weaver-Zercher combines research and interviews with devoted readers, publishers, and authors to produce a lively and provocative examination of the Amish romance novel. She discusses strategies that literary agents and booksellers use to drive the genres popularity. By asking questions about authenticity, cultural appropriation, and commodification, Thrill of the Chaste also considers Amish fictions effects on Amish and non-Amish audiences alike.

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were cast as exemplars of national virtues; Hans Christian Andersens life becamewith his participationa fairy tale in itself. Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, the prim governess who wrote moral tales for girls, had a more colorful past than her readers would have imagined, and few people knew that nineteen-year-old Marie-Catherine dAulnoy conspired to kill her much-older husband. Important figures about whom little is known, such as Giovan Francesco Straparola and Giambattista Basile, are rendered more completely than ever before.
