Throughout his work, Charles Dickens focused upon the definition, composition, and democratizing of the process of writing history. In Dickens and New Historicism, William J. Palmer takes as his point of departure the New Historicist critical theories articulated by Michel Foucault, Mikhail Bakhtin, Hayden White, Dominick LaCapra and others, and offers a critical analysis of Dickens's complete body of work. Palmer reveals that not only did Dickens give voice to the marginalized participants in the history of the eighteenth century and of his own contemporary Victorian age, but evolved a philosophy of history composed from the perspective of those marginalized voices

The films of the nineties : the decade of spin by William J Palmer( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Films of the Ninetees is a real-to-reel cultural analysis of the 1990s. Drawing on the theories of postmodern philosophers Jean Baudrillard and Jean-Francois Lyolard, this volume scrutinizes films and television shows such as Forrest Gump, Philadelphia, Titanic, Shrek, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and The West Wing with an eye trained on implicit attitudes about notions of reality and objective truth. Through these readings, Palmer chronicles the concept of "spin," the power to turn history to one's own agenda, a concept that emerged as the major sociopolitical persuasion strategy of the decade. In a world changed by the AIDS epidemic, the Clinton presidency, hip-hop, gay rights, and the redefinition of sexuality, the traditional conceptions of reality broke down and spin became a powerful force. The Films of the Nineties is an extensive analysis that dissects hundreds of individual works - but it is also a social, political, and sexual history of one of the most lively and complex decades of the twentieth century."--Jacket
