Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Imagining Mass Dictatorships: The Individual and the Masses in Literature and Cinema , deals with different representations of mass dictatorships. The works covered are quite heterogeneous and range from the books of Nobel-prize winners Herta Muller and Imre Kertesz to Swedish proletarian youth papers of the 1920s and contemporary crime novels. The volume provides valuable insights into the representation of mass dictatorships in literature and film, relating to whether we perceive our own form of government as substantively different or not so very different at all.'- Regine Zeller, Journal of Contemporary European Studies , (2014)
