Espionage and exile

£18.00

Product description

245 pp Used good condition . Tightly bound pages. Clean except for ink inscription to previous owner inside front cover. Black & white photographs.
"Analyses mid-twentieth century British spy thrillers as resistance to political oppression Espionage and Exile demonstrates that from the 1930s through the Cold War British writers Eric Ambler, Helen MacInnes, John le Carr, Pamela Frankau and filmmaker Leslie Howard combine propaganda and popular entertainment to call for resistance to political oppression. Their spy fictions deploy themes of deception and betrayal to warn audiences of the consequences of Nazi Germanys conquests and later, the fusion of Fascist and Communist oppression. With politically charged suspense and compelling plots and characters, these writers challenge distinctions between villain and victim and exile and belonging by dramatising relationships between stateless refugees, British agents, and most dramatically, between the ethics of espionage and responses to international crisis. Key Features The first narrative analysis of mid-twentieth century British spy thrillers demonstrating their critiques of political responses to the dangers of Fascism, Nazism, and Communism Combines research in history and political theory with literary and film analysis Adds interpretive complexity to understanding the political content of modern cultural production Original close readings of the fiction of Eric Ambler, John Le Carr and British women spy thriller writers of World War II and the Cold War, including Helen MacInnes, Ann Bridge, and Pamela Frankau as well as the wartime radio broadcasts and films of Leslie Howard" (Taken from blurb)
