9780230321434: Race, Ralph Ellison and American Cold War Intellectual Culture (Language, Discourse, Society)

While the arms race of the post-war period has been widely discussed, Purcell explores the under-acknowledged but critical role another kind of 'race' – that is, race as a biological and sociological concept – played within the global and cultural Cold War.

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 216 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.7in. x 0.7in.After World War II, writers and literary critics black and white engaged in heated debates centred on the literary and imaginative problem of representing African-Americans in American literature. As the Cold War unfolded, many of these debates began to appear in journals, conferences and other events, including those directly sponsored by the Congress for Cultural Freedom and other organisations funded by U. S. and British intelligence agencies. Ralph Ellison, who would eventually join the American Congress for Cultural Freedom, was one of the most famous and frequently published critics on the Negro Problem in literature during this period. Using never before published materials from Ralph Ellisons papers at the Library of Congress, Purcell contextualises his thinking on the Negro Problem in particular its bearing on American literary history, Modernism and broader American geo-politics within the shadow of the CCFs influence. Therefore, not only does the book explore how the Cold Wars ideological battles influenced these debates, it illuminates the important role race and more specifically African-American writers and intellectuals played in the cultural Cold War. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9780230321434
