McCANN, Sean, Gumshoe America : Hard-


Boiled Crime Fiction and the Rise and Fall
of the New Deal Liberalism, Durham (N.C.),
Duke University Press, 2000, 360 pages.
Gumshoe America traces the way those problems
surfaced in hard-boiled crime fiction from
the1920s through the 1960s. Beginning by
using a forum on the KKK in the pulp magazine
Black Mask to describe both the economic and
political culture of pulp fiction in the early
twenties, McCann locates the origins of the
hard-boiled crime story in the genre’s conflict
with the racist antiliberalism prominent at the
time. Turning his focus to Dashiell Hammett’s
career, McCann shows how Hammett’s writings
in the late 1920s and early 1930s moved
detective fiction away from its founding fables
of social compact to the cultural alienation
triggered by a burgeoning administrative state.
He then examines how Raymond Chandler’s
fiction, unlike Hammett’s, idealized sentimental
fraternity, echoing the communitarian appeals

Detective : A Critical History from the
1920s to the Present, Jefferson (NC),
McFarland, 2006, 306 pages.
The hard-boiled private detective is among the
most recognizable characters in popular fiction
since the 1920s-a tough product of a violent
world, in which police forces are inadequate
and people with money can choose private help
when facing threatening circumstances. Though
a relatively recent arrival, the hard-boiled
detective has undergone steady development
and assumed diverse forms. This critical study
analyzes the character of the hard-boiled
detective, from literary antecedents through
the early 21st century. It follows change in the
novels through three main periods: the Early
(roughly 1927–1955), during which the
character was defined by such writers as
Carroll John Daly, Dashiell Hammett and
Raymond Chandler; the Transitional, evident NYMAN, Jopi, Men Alone : Masculinity,
