Have you ever read a review of a comic or graphic novel on a website and felt like you were only reading a book report? How many of you noticed an article in an academic journal that focused on one of your favorite graphic novels, but it ended up glossing over – or completely forgetting to mention - aspects of the art and dryly deconstructed the narrative?

Free E-Book: Outside the Gates of Eden: The Dream of America from Hiroshima to Now


Submitted by syntaxfactory on February 1, 2016 - 4:49pm


The American cultural landscape in the second half of the twentieth century is the focus of our free e-book for February, Outside the Gates of Eden: The Dream of America from Hiroshima to Now by Peter Bacon Hales. It was the age of atomic testing, duck-and-cover, sprawling suburbs, TV, rock-and-roll, rockets to the moon, and riots in the cities. It was the fevered ascendance of the new, pop, modern, and utopian. Levittown to Lucy to Dylan. It was a time of exhilaration and anxiety, of shock and malaise, of the yearning for community and the quest for identity.
