The Health of the State

Modern US War Narrative and the American Political Imagination, 1890-1964

Jonathan Vincent

  • Challenges the prevailing conception of the post-World War I literary backlash as a more robust culture of dissent than the writing after World War II.
  • Demonstrates the limitation of orientations in cultural history that measure a work's "democracy" by identity diversity alone.
  • Offers a truly interdisciplinary study conjoining literary interpretation with cultural history and political theory.
