The Comics of Chris Ware: Drawing Is a Way of Thinking brings together contributions from established and emerging scholars about the comics of Chicago-based cartoonist Chris Ware (b. 1967). Both inside and outside academic circles, Ware's work is rapidly being distinguished as essential to the developing canon of the graphic novel. Winner of the 2001 Guardian First Book Prize for the genre-defining Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth, Ware has received numerous accolades from both the literary and comics establishment.

Mass delusions : crowds and power in the works of Elias Canetti, Jean-Paul Sartre, Milan Kundera, and Don DeLillo by Martha B Kuhlman( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To explore the tension between these conflicting extremes, I compare the works of four authors who cross the divide between Western and Eastern Europe (Jean-Paul Sartre and Milan Kundera), Europe and the United States (Elias Canetti and Don DeLillo). In the introduction, I discuss how the "crowd" emerged through the invention of "crowd psychology" in France around the turn of the century. With a fearful backward glance at the French Revolution, many of the first crowd psychologists presented the crowd as inherently dangerous and irrational. The first chapter examines how Canetti both relies upon and departs from these early representations in Crowds and Power [Masse and Macht], a strange hybrid of sociology, anthropology and poetry. Sartre's novel The Reprieve [ Le sursis], the second in his Roads to Freedom series, is the subject of the second chapter. This book is a snapshot of the collective panic that seized France during the Munich negotiations of 1938, a moment when all of Europe was entranced and horrified by Hitler's bold seizure of Czechoslovakia. In the third chapter, I examine how Kundera's negative representation of crowds and collectivities in his Czech novels, originally reactions against the Communist occupation of Czechoslovakia, continue to haunt the novels he writes in France. The final chapter contrasts European visions of totalitarian crowds--whether Fascist or Communist--with DeLillo's postmodern perspective on these phenomena through the lens of American mass culture in his novels Mao II and Underworld
