Archives of Authority:
Empire, Culture, and the Cold War
Andrew N. Rubin

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is an exciting exploration of important categories in world literature, a lucid explanation for its rise and fall, and an excellent argument for its careful reconsideration."--Paul Bové, University of Pittsburgh

"Rubin reminds us how the insights of a literary way of thinking to the assessment of geopolitical history are inimitable. This meticulously researched and broad-minded book reopens the terrain of oppositional criticism embedded in a humanist pedagogy during an epoch that perversely fetishizes its own catastrophic anti-intellectualism as resistance."--Stathis Gourgouris, Columbia University

"This rigorous and intrinsically interesting book is the academic equivalent of a Cold War spy novel, replete with intriguing archival findings and the implication of its author in the bureaucratic Kafkaesque structure of CIA document censorship. It is sure to appeal to a wide audience in literature, Cold War history, political science, and law."--Emily Apter, New York University
