Review:

"His books are a tool for liberation."

--Peter Lamborn Wilson
"There is no one better qualified to explore the meaning of today's 'culture wars', locally and globally."

--Amitav Ghosh
"Alcalay brings to any subject an acute sensitivity to writing and a

sophisticated understanding of the way politics works to produce and

maintain literature... Ammiel Alcalay is a unique and important figure in contemporary world literature."

--Lynne Tillman
"It is Ammiel Alcalay's consistent curiosity, his care concerning the world in which he lives, his determined, capable mind, that I value so much. Simply put, he is an indefatigable worker, and a brilliant one."

--Robert Creeley

Book Description UpSet Press, Incorporated, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, the war in Iraq, and 9/11, 'A Little History' explores the deep politics of memory and imagination while proposing a new paradigm for American Studies. With preface by editor Fred Dewey, Alcalay's book places the work of major figures like Muriel Rukeyser, Charles Olson, Edward Dorn, Diane di Prima, and Amiri Baraka, in the realm of resistance and global decolonization to assert the power of poetry as a unique form of knowledge. Recognized by Edward Said as "that rare thing, a gifted prose writer and poet, and an accomplished intellectual," Alcalay brings his blend of autobiographical and investigative scholarship to bear on this timely and important book of essays.

Book Description re: public/UpSet Press, Los Angeles, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. First Edition, First Printing. 315 pp., small 8vo. Sewn signatures glued into photo-illustrated wrappers. With notes, list of works consulted, and index. Edited with a preface by Fred Dewey. A stunning book of essays; in the words of the editor: "A Little History is a rich work of discovery, recovery, and response whose purpose is to dig, to find, and to preserve. The lectures that provided a beginning for the heart of the book -- investigating international politics through the lens formed by the work and choices of Gloucester poet and thinker Charles Olson -- were delivered at Cornell in 2002 and at Poet's House in New York City in 2004. While the consequence of these talks, delivered by poet, translator, critic, and scholar Ammiel Alcalay, has percolated out -- through public events, a web site, and Alcalay's crucial Lost & Found chapbook series at CUNY's Graduate Center, recovering lost works -- the original thinking has existed, until now, only in clandestine form."
