Crusoe's footprints : cultural studies in Britain and America by Patrick Brantlinger( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Cultural Studies"" has emerged in British and American higher education as a movement that challenges the traditional humanities and social science disciplines. Influenced by the New Left, feminism, and poststructualist literary theory, cultural studies seeks to analyze everyday life and the social construction of ""subjectivities."" Crusoe's Footprints encompasses the movement of many colleges and universities in the 1960s towards such interdisciplinary and ""radical"" programs as American Studies, Women's Studies, and Afro-American Studies.

Dark vanishings : discourse on the extinction of primitive races, 1800-1930 by Patrick Brantlinger( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patrick Brantlinger here examines the commonly held nineteenth-century view that all "primitive" or "savage" races around the world were doomed sooner or later to extinction. Warlike propensities and presumed cannibalism were regarded as simultaneously noble and suicidal, accelerants of the downfall of other races after contact with white civilization. Brantlinger finds at the heart of this belief the stereotype of the self-exterminating savage, or the view that "savagery" is a sufficient explanation for the ultimate disappearance of "savages" from the grand theater of world history. -- from back cover
Fictions of state : culture and credit in Britain, 1694-1994 by Patrick Brantlinger( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this ambitious book, Patrick Brantlinger offers a cultural history of Great Britain focused on the concept of "public credit," from the 1694 founding of the Bank of England to the present. He draws on literary texts ranging from Augustan satire such as Gulliver's Travels to postmodern satire such as Martin Amis's Money: A Suicide Note, all of which critique the misrecognition of public credit as wealth

Taming cannibals : race and the Victorians by Patrick Brantlinger( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the dust jacket. In Taming Cannibals, Patrick Brantlinger unravels contradictions embedded in the racist and imperial ideology of the British Empire. For many Victorians, the idea of taming cannibals or civilizing savages was oxymoronic: civilization was a goal that the nonwhite peoples of the world could not attain or, at best, could only approximate, yet the "civilizing mission" was viewed as the ultimate justification for imperialism. Similarly, the supposedly unshakeable certainty of Anglo-Saxon racial superiority was routinely undercut by widespread fears about racial degeneration through contact with "lesser" races or concerns that Anglo-Saxons might be superseded by something superior -- an even "fitter" or "higher" race or species. Brantlinger traces the development of those fears through close readings of a wide range of texts -- including Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, Fiji and the Fijians by Thomas Williams, Daily Life and Origin of the Tasmanians by James Bonwick, The Descent of Man by Charles Darwin, Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, Culture and Anarchy by Matthew Arnold, She by H. Rider Haggard, and The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells. Throughout the wide-ranging, capacious, and rich Taming Cannibals, Brantlinger combines the study of literature with sociopolitical history and postcolonial theory in novel ways

Victorian literature and postcolonial studies by Patrick Brantlinger( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the relationship between the British Empire and Victorian literature. It explains how Victorian literature both gave expression to pro-imperialist themes, and engaged with forms of opposition to the empire like abolitionism and early Indian nationalism. Victorian literature is analyzed in relation to key debates in postcolonial studies about Orientalism, race, gender, Marxism, subalterneity, imperial historiography, mimicry and representation. And there are in-depth examinations of works by major Victorian authors in an imperial context, notably those of Dickens, Charlotte Bronte, Disraeli, Tennyson, Yeats, Kipling and Conrad."--Jacket
