Thisbookprovidesanoriginalandcompellinganalysisof
the ways in which British womens golden age crime
narratives negotiate the conflicting social and cultural
forces that influenced depictions of gender in popular
cultureinthe1920suntilthelate1940s.Thebookexplores
awidevarietyoftextsproducedbothbywriterswhohave
been the focus of a relatively large amount of critical
attention,suchasAgathaChristie,DorothyL.Sayersand

comparatively little, such as Christianna Brand, Ngaio
Marsh, Gladys Mitchell, Josephine Tey and Patricia
Wentworth. Through its original readings, this book
explores the ambivalent nature of modes of femininity
depicted in golden age crime fiction, and shows that
seemingly conservative resolutions are often attempts to

"This edited collection brings childhood studies into an
important conversation with a dominant genre of recent
years: postapocalyptic cinema. Olson unites a group of
international scholars who examine some expected films
(The Road and The Children of Men), but also some
unexpectedones(TheOmegaMan,IAmLegend,Dawnof
the Dead, and Daybreakers). The result is a diverse and
fascinating examination of how, as Olson puts it, the
Child . . . defines the lost past/present and becomes a
motivational,almostsacredimagetospuronreclamationof
