Regional Interest | FoodConey DetroitKatherine Yung and Joe GrimmA lively and thorough history of Detroit’s culinaryicon: the coney island hot dog.Detroit is the world capital of the coney island hot dog—a naturalcasinghot dog topped with an all-meat beanless chili, choppedwhite onions, and yellow mustard. In Coney Detroit, authors KatherineYung and Joe Grimm investigate all aspects of the belovedregional delicacy, which was created by Greek immigrants in theearly 1900s. Coney Detroit traces the history of the coney islandrestaurant, which existed in many cities but thrived nowhere as itdid in Detroit, and surveys many of the hundreds of independentand chain restaurants in business today. In more than 150 mouthwateringphotographs and informative, playful text, readers willlearn about the traditions, rivalries, and differences between therestaurants, some even located right next door to each other.Coney Detroit showcases such Metro Detroit favorites as AmericanConey Island, Lafayette Coney Island, Duly’s Coney Island, Kerby’sConey Island, National Coney Island, and Leo’s Coney Island.As Yung and Grimm uncover the secret ingredients of an authenticDetroit coney, they introduce readers to the suppliers whoproduce the hot dogs, chili sauce, and buns, and also reveal the many variationsof the coney—including coney tacos, coney pizzas, and coney omelets. While theconey legend is centered in Detroit, Yung and Grimm explore coney traditions inother Michigan cities, including Flint, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Port Huron, Pontiac,and Traverse City, and even venture to some notable coney islands outside ofMichigan, from the east coast to the west. Most importantly, the book introducesand celebrates the families and individuals that created and continue to proudlyserve Detroit’s favorite food.“Every politician campaigning in Detroit must get photographedwith a coney in hand. Athletes and music stars goingfor after-game or concert coneys run into fans doing the samething. When national media declare a coney showdown, weflock to the restaurants to cheer on our favorites like we cheeron our sports teams.”—Joe Grimm, from the prefaceNot a book to be read on an empty stomach, Coney Detroit deserves a place inevery Detroiter or Detroiter-at-heart’s collection.Katherine Yung is a reporter at the Detroit Free Press covering Michigan’s economyand other business subjects.

Regional Interest | Sports HistoryThe Glory Years of theDetroit Tigers1920–1950William M. AndersonWith a foreword by Dan DickersonExamines in text and vivid photographs a thirty-year span ofDetroit Tigers baseball, from 1920 to 1950.In the three decades between 1920 and 1950, the Detroit Tigers won fourAmerican League pennants, the first world championship in team history in1935, and a second world crown ten years later. Star players of this era—including Ty Cobb, Harry Heilmann, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg,Mickey Cochrane, George Kell, and Hal Newhouser—represent the majorityof Tigers players inducted into the Hall of Fame. Sports writers followed theteam feverishly, and fans packed Navin Field (later Briggs Stadium) to cheeron the high-flying Tigers, with the first record season attendance of one millionrecorded in 1924 and surpassed eight more times before 1950. In TheGlory Years of the Detroit Tigers: 1920–1950, author William M. Andersoncombines historical narrative and photographs of these years to argue thatthese years were the greatest in the history of the franchise.Anderson presents over 350 unique and lively images, mostly culled fromthe remarkable Detroit News archive, that showcase players’ personalities aswell as their exploits on the field. For their meticulous coverage and colorfulstyle, Anderson consults Tigers reporting from the three daily Detroit newspapersof the era (the Detroit News, Detroit Free Press, and Detroit Times) andthe Sporting News, which was known then as the “Baseball Bible.” Someespecially compelling columns are reproduced intact to give readers a feelfor the exciting and careful reporting of these years. Anderson combines historicaltext with photos in six topical chapters: “Spring Training: When Dreams areEntertained,” “Franchise Stars,” “The Supporting Cast,” “Moments of Glory andNotable Games,” “The War Years,” and “The Old Ballpark: Where Legends andMemories Were Made.” Anderson presents sketches of many fine players whohave been overlooked in other histories and visits characters who often acted instrange ways: Dizzy Trout, Gee Walker, Elwood “Boots” “The Baron” Poffenbeger,and Louis “Bobo” “Buck” Newsom.Tigers fans and anyone interested in local sports culture will enjoy this comprehensiveand compelling look into the glory years of Tigers history.“This was a time when players willingly cooperated with photographersas these photographic artists used great imaginationin creating and preserving intriguing and interesting moments.. . .

Regional Interest | Legal HistoryThe United States District Courtfor the Eastern Districtof MichiganPeople, Law, and PoliticsDavid Gardner ChardavoyneA chronological history of the United States District Court for theEastern District of Michigan, from its beginnings in the 1830s tothe present.The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, the federaltrial court based in Detroit with jurisdiction over the eastern half of Michigan, wascreated in 1837 and operated as recently as 1923 with a single trial judge. Yet by2010, the court had fifteen district judges, a dozen senior U.S. district judges andU.S. magistrate judges, and conducts court year-round in five federal buildingsthroughout the eastern half of Michigan (in Detroit, Bay City, Flint, Port Huron,and Ann Arbor). In The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan:People, Law, and Politics, author David Gardner Chardavoyne details not onlythe growth of the court but the stories of its judges and others who have servedthe court, litigants who brought their conflicting interests to the court for resolution,and the people of the district who have been affected by the court.In chronological order, Chardavoyne charts the history of the court, its judges, andits major cases in five parts: The Wilkins Years, 1837 to 1870; The Industrial Revolutionand the Gilded Age, 1870 to 1900; Decades of Tumult, 1900 to 1945; TheEra of Grand Expectations, 1946 to 1976; and A Major Metropolitan Court, 1977to 2010. Along the way, Chardavoyne highlights many issues of national concernfaced by the court, including cases dealing with fugitive slave laws, espionageand treason, civil rights, and freedom of speech. Chardavoyne also examines howconflicting interests—political, local, and personal—have influenced the resolutionof a myriad of issues not directly related to the court’s cases, such as whobecomes a federal judge, how many judges the court should have, in which citiesand in which buildings the judges hold court, what kinds of cases the judges canand cannot hear, and the geographical boundaries of the district and of divisionswithin the district.This volume includes helpful appendixes that list the Eastern District of MichiganCourt’s Chief Judges, Clerks, Magistrates and Magistrate Judges, and United StatesMarshals; along with the succession of judges, and a list of District and CircuitCourt Case Filings, 1837–2010. Legal professionals and scholars will appreciatethis thorough history.“Advances our understanding that the work of the federalcourts was not monolithic but varied significantly across districtsbecause of local needs and interests.”—Eric Rise, associate professor in the Department of Sociologyand Criminal Justice at the University of DelawareOf Related InterestDavid G.

Literature | Poetryallegiancepoems by francine j. harrisA sharp, haunting, and lyrical collection that attempts tounderstand what we owe the spaces we inhabit.The full-length debut from francine j. harris, allegiance is about Detroit, sortof. Although many of the poems are inspired by and dwell in the spaces ofthe city, this collection does not revel in any of the cliché cultural tropes normallyassociated with Detroit. Instead, these poems artfully explore life in acity where order coexists with chaos and much is lost in social and physicalbreakdown. Narrative poems on the hazards, betrayals, and annoyances ofcity life mix with impressionistic poems that evoke the natural world, as harrisgrapples with issues of beauty and horror, loyalty and individuality, andmemory and loss on Detroit’s complicated canvas.In twelve sections, harris introduces readers to loungers and bystanders, prisoners’wives, poets pictured on book jackets, Caravaggio’s Jesus, and citypriests. She leads readers past the lone house on the block that cannot bewalked down, through layers of discarded objects in the high school yard, andinto various classrooms, bars, and living rooms. Shorter poems highlight thepersistence of nature—in water, weeds, orchids, begonias, insects, pigeons,and pheasants. Some poems convey a sense of the underbelly, desire, anddisgust while others treat issues of religion, both in institutional settings andpersonal prayers. In her honest but unsentimental voice, harris layers personalhistory and rich details to explore how our surroundings shape our selvesand what allegiance we owe them when they have turn almost everythingto ashes.Throughout allegiance, harris presents herself as an extraordinarily perceptivepoet with a compelling and original voice. Poetry lovers will appreciate this excitingdebut collection.francine j. harris is a Detroit native whose recent work has appeared in Rattle,Callaloo, and Michigan Quarterly Review and she is the author of the recent chapbookbetween old trees.

Literature | PoetryBooker T. & ThemA BluesAs presented by Bill HarrisA poetic reimagining of the life of Booker T. Washington thatexplores issues of being an African American male of note at thebeginning of the twentieth century.The early 1900s was a dangerous time for African American men, whether famousor nameless. Punishment from any perceived transgression against the Jim Crowpower structure came swiftly in legislative, emotional, or physical form, and itcould well take one’s life. Despite this reality, however, a number of African Americansstill lifted their heads, straightened their spines, and spoke and acted againstthe mainstream. In Booker T. & Them: A Blues, poet and playwright Bill Harris examineswhat he calls “the age of Booker T.” (1900 –1915), when America beganflexing its imperialistic muscles, D. W. Griffith’s Birth of a Nation was released, andThomas Edison’s many technological innovations set the tone for the United Statesto be viewed as the nation of the century.In the historical and imaginative narrative of this “bio-poem,” Harris considersseveral African Americans who sought to be men that mattered in a racist America,including Booker T. Washington, W. E. B. DuBois, William Monroe Trotter, GeorgeWashington Carver, and Jack Johnson, as he traces their effects on history and eachother. In tandem, he visits white historical figures like Thomas Edison, TheodoreRoosevelt, and D. W. Griffiths as well as some invented characters like students andprofessors at the Tuskegee Institute. Throughout, Harris shows that the rapid paceof early twentieth-century American change, progress, and science coincided withpersistent and reinvented forms of white supremacy. Harris’s exciting structure offersvaried rhythms and a blues sensibility that showcases his witty lines and vividimagery.As a follow-up to his 2009 work Birth of a Notion; Or, the Half Ain’t Never BeenTold, this book extends Harris’s critical and experimental examination of Americanhistory by presenting evidence for a greater understanding of these men and thecultural forces that shaped them. Readers interested in African American studies,American culture, and contemporary poetry will appreciate the unique perspectiveof Booker T. & Them: A Blues.Bill Harris retired as professor of English at Wayne State University in 2011 andis author of numerous plays, including Robert Johnson Trick the Devil, Stories Aboutthe Old Days, Riffs, and Coda. He is the author of three books of poetry, Birth ofa Notion; Or, the Half Ain’t Never Been Told (Wayne State University Press, 2009),The Ringmaster’s Array, and Yardbird Suite: Side One, which won the 1997 NaomiLong Madgett Poetry Award. Harris was named the 2011 Kresge Eminent Artistby the Kresge Foundation in recognition of his professional accomplishments andcommunity engagement.February 2012, 5.5 x 8.5, 264 PagesISBN 978-0-8143-3716-5, $18.95t PaperMade in Michigan Writers Seriese“Bill Harris is brilliant.

Bell.Bearing Witness to African American Literature: Validating and Valorizing Its Authority,Authenticity, and Agency collects twenty-three of Bernard W.

Brown, and W. E. B. DuBois.

Literature | ProfilesLake Superior ProfilesPeople on the Big LakeJohn GagnonIntroduces readers to ordinary, offbeat, and interesting peopleliving on and around Lake Superior.Like Lake Superior itself, the communities of people surrounding the “Big Lake”are vast and full of variety, spanning state and international boundaries. In LakeSuperior Profiles: People on the Big Lake, author John Gagnon gives readers a senseof the memorable characters who inhabit the area without attempting to takean exhaustive inventory. Instead, Gagnon met people casually and interviewedthem—from a tugboat captain to an iron ore boat captain, Native Americans, andfishery biologists. Different though their stories are, all share a steadfast character,an attachment to the moody lake, and a devotion to their work.Lake Superior Profiles combines biography, history, folklore, religion, and humor infifteen diverse chapters. In Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Ontario, Gagnonvisits the rivers, bays, small towns, larger cities, and nature preserves that surroundLake Superior to meet the people who make their homes there. Among those hemeets are several fisherman, a botanist studying arctic wildflowers on Isle Royale, aformer lighthouse keeper on a remote reef on the lake, a voyageur reenactor fromDuluth, a woman who harvests wild rice each August in the Bad River Sloughs, anda monk living on the Keweenaw Peninsula. He also writes about three of the lake’smajor fish species, a rock formation steeped in lore called the Sleeping Giant, andthe current fragile ecology of the Big Lake.Engaging in style and varied in content, these profiles display Gagnon’s naturalcuriosity and storytelling acumen in illustrating the many ways the lake shapes thelives of those near it. Residents of the Lake Superior region and readers interestedin the area will enjoy Lake Superior Profiles.John Gagnon has worked as a journalist, carpenter, and publicist. He is also theauthor of Hard Maple, Hard Work, a collection of profiles of people who work withanother of Upper Michigan’s natural resources—its prized hard maple.March 2012, 5.5 x 8.5, 272 Pages, 36 IllustrationsISBN 978-0-8143-3628-1, $24.95s PaperGreat Lakes Books Seriese“When I was a lad, there used to be a sign in the KeweenawPeninsula: ‘You are now breathing the purest, most vitalizingair on earth.’ It’s said the college fellows used to nail skunks tothe sign.

Earth Science | GeologyGeology and Landscape ofMichigan’s Pictured RocksNational Lakeshore and VicinityWilliam L. BlewettA fully illustrated field guide to the geology and scenery ofnorthern Michigan’s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore andvicinity.Michigan’s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore was established in 1966 to preserveone of the most exquisite freshwater coastal landscapes in North America. Locatedbetween Munising and Grand Marais on Lake Superior, the rugged coastline is anchoredby the Pictured Rocks cliffs—soaring sandstone fortresses awash with naturalpink, green, and brown pigments. While the Pictured Rocks’ geologic historyis generally well understood by scientists, much of this information is scatteredamong different sources and not easily accessible to general readers. In Geologyand Landscape of Michigan’s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore and Vicinity, WilliamL. Blewett synthesizes published and unpublished information on the park’s geologichistory and combines it with vivid color photographs, detailed maps, anddiagrams of the area.Blewett examines the history and geology of the very ancient Precambrian, Cambrian,and Ordovician components of the Pictured Rocks dating back hundredsof millions of years, as well as the much younger unconsolidated Pleistocene (iceage) and Holocene (warm period since the ice age, including the modern landscape)sediments mantling the bedrock, most of which are no older than 12,000years. He also details the history of the Lake Superior basin, tracing the events thatshaped the modern shoreline from ancient times. For visitors to Pictured Rocks NationalLakeshore, Blewett has provided a detailed mileage-referenced road log toguide readers to the best and most accessible field sites, and, for the more adventurous,includes a day hike keyed to the geology. A comprehensive bibliographyand index are also included at the end of the book for further research.While it assumes an understanding of basic geologic principles, the volume is veryreadable and suitable for students, interested park visitors, and geologists, physicalgeographers, and those working in closely related fields such as archaeology,biology, ecology, and environmental science.“To the student of geology and landforms, the Pictured Rocksregion provides an excellent natural laboratory for exploringthe materials, processes, and events involved in shaping thismost sublime of midwestern landscapes. This book is designedto provide a general overview of our current understanding ofthis extraordinary terrain and to guide the interested visitor tothe best and most accessible field sites.”—William L. Blewett, from the introductionWilliam L.

Earth Science | ZoologyAmphibians and Reptilesof MichiganA Quaternary and Recent Faunal AdventureJ. Alan HolmanA comprehensive look at Michigan amphibians and reptilesfrom ancient times to present.With its temperate climate and variety of habitats, Michigan supports a diversearray of animals and plants, including fifty-four species of amphibians and reptiles.The dispersal and biology of the Michigan herpetofauna—amphibiansand reptiles—is even more unique because Michigan consists of two peninsulasthat project into large freshwater seas and also because it was completelycovered by a massive ice sheet a relatively short time ago. In Amphibians andReptiles of Michigan: A Quaternary and Recent Faunal Adventure, author J. AlanHolman explores the state’s amphibians and reptiles in detail and with manyhelpful illustrations, making this the only volume of its kind available.Holman uniquely bridges the gap between neo- and paleoherpetology andshows that Michigan’s modern herpetofaunas reflect Pleistocene (ice age)and Holocene (warm period after the ice age) events, as the entire modernpopulation was forced to re-invade the state after the last withdrawal of ice.In Part 1, Holman discusses Michigan as an amphibian and reptile habitat,including a geological, climatic, and vegetational history. Part 2 presents recentspecies accounts, covering all fifty-four species of amphibians and reptiles,along with their general distribution, Michigan distribution (with rangemaps), geographic variation, habitat and habits, reproduction and growth,diet, predation and defense, interaction with humans, behavioral characteristics,population health, and general remarks. In Part 3, Holman examinesthe Michigan herpetofauna in Quaternary and recent historical times and thespecies accounts include Pleistocene, Holocene, and archaeological records.Color photographs of major herpetological habitats in Michigan are providedand color photographs of all modern species are included. Black-and-whiteillustrations depict both modern and ancient speicies.

Film and Television Studies | CriticismFilm and RiskEdited by Mette HjortAn interdisciplinary collection exploring the many ways riskplays a role in film.The phenomenon of risk has been seriously neglected in connection with thestudy of film, yet many of those who write about film seem to have intuitionsabout how various forms of risk-taking shape aspects of the filmmaking or filmviewingprocess. Film and Risk fills this gap as editor Mette Hjort and interdisciplinarycontributors discuss film’s relation to all types of risk. Bringing together scholarsfrom philosophy, anthropology, film studies, economics, and cultural studies,as well as experts from the fields of law, filmmaking, and photojournalism, thisvolume discusses risk from multiple intriguing angles.In thirteen chapters, contributors consider concrete risks (e.g., stunts or financialdecisions); theoretical aesthetic and artistic risks (e.g., filmmakers who incorporateexcessive hazards into their films); and the real-world jeopardy spectators mightput themselves in when viewing films. The first three chapters tackle the conceptualterrain that is relevant to understanding risk in film. The next three chaptersfocus on risk as it pertains to the practice of filmmaking. Subsequent chapters dealwith economic risk and the role that risk has in the development of film’s institutionallandscape. The scholarship in this collection is impressive, boasting some ofthe top writers in their respective fields.Through the contributors’ clear and thorough discussions, this cohesive but diversecollection shows that risk arises in many different areas that tend to bethought of as central to film studies. Scholars of film studies will appreciate thisdaring and inventive collection, and readers with a general interest in film studieswill enjoy its accessible style.Mette Hjort is Chair Professor and Head of Visual Studies at Lingnan Universityin Hong Kong, Affiliate Professor of Scandinavian Studies at the University ofWashington in Seattle, and Honorary Professor at the Centre for Modern EuropeanStudies, University of Copenhagen.

Film and Television Studies | TelevisionDeadwoodIna Rae HarkConsiders the HBO series Deadwood in the context of thetelevision Western genre and the intersection of capital andviolence in American history.By dramatizing the intersection of self-interested capitalism and foundational violencein a mining camp in 1870s South Dakota, the HBO series Deadwood reinventedthe television Western. In this volume, Ina Rae Hark examines the groundbreakingseries from a variety of angles: its relationship to past iterations of thegenre on the small screen; its production context, both within the HBO paradigmand as part of the oeuvre of its creator and showrunner David Milch; and its thematics.Hark’s comprehensive analysis also takes into account the series’ trademarkuse of language: both its unrelenting and ferocious obscenity and the brilliantcomplexity of its dialogue.Hark argues that Deadwood dissolves several traditional binaries of the Westerngenre. She demonstrates that while the show appears to pit individuality, savagery,lawlessness, social regulation, and civilization against each other, its narrativeshows that apparent opposites are often analogues, and these forces can morphinto allies very quickly. Indeed, perhaps the show’s biggest paradox and most profoundrevelation is that self-interest and communitarianism cannot survive withouteach other. Hark closely analyzes Al Swearengen (as played by Ian McShane), thecharacter who most embodies this paradox. A brutal cutthroat and purveyor ofany vice that can turn him a profit, Swearengen nevertheless becomes the figurewho forges connections among the camp’s disparate individuals and shepherdstheir growth into a community.Deadwood is quintessentially, if unflatteringly, American in what it reveals aboutthe dark underpinnings of national success rooted not in some renewed Eden butin a town that is, in the apt words of one of its promotional taglines, “a hell of aplace to make your fortune.” Fans of the show and scholars of television historywill enjoy Hark’s analysis of Deadwood.Ina Rae Hark is Distinguished Professor Emerita in English and Film/Media Studiesat the University of South Carolina. She is also the author of Star Trek and editor ofAmerican Cinema of the 1930s: Themes and Variations, as well as the co-editor of TheRoad Movie Book and Screening the Male (both with Steven Cohan).March 2012, 5 x 7, 144 Pages, 15 IllustrationsISBN 978-0-8143-3449-2, $15.95s Papere“One of the best television series of the 2000s, Deadwood deservesthis lively and thoughtful book.

Film and Television Studies | TelevisionGilligan’s IslandWalter MetzAn analysis of the under-studied sitcom Gilligan’s Island thataddresses key questions about American social life in the 1960s.Gilligan’s Island, created by Sherwood Schwartz, aired for three seasons between1964 and 1967 on the CBS network. While the series was typically dismissed forits episodic inanity, author Walter Metz argues that this characteristic is preciselythe source of the show’s innovation as it produces a vibrant critique of dominantAmerican values. In this analysis of Gilligan’s Island, Metz reveals the inner workingsof American television and society through an intensive look at the popularsitcom.In twenty-one short sections, Metz investigates many aspects of Gilligan’s Island:the narrative, the characters, the plot, and the performativity. Through multipleepisode analyses and character examinations, Metz shows how the castaways’actions on the island held deeper meaning and illustrated American social customs.The book also looks at several different themes presented in the show andconnects them to many literary traditions, including Shakespeare (The Tempestand Hamlet), existential theatre (Waiting for Godot), and classic American literature(Moby-Dick). Through this discussion, Metz examines the literacy of Gilligan’s Islandand the way it knowingly returns to certain tropes from high literature, maskingtheir expression in a distinctly populist American idiom. Metz also addressesthe legacy of Gilligan’s Island and its profound effect on American television, asevidenced by popular contemporary shows like Survivor and Lost.At one point in time, Gilligan’s Island was the most syndicated show around theworld, but few scholarly articles exist about it. Fans of the show and those interestedin television history and popular culture will enjoy this playful and informativestudy that fills a gap in television history.Walter Metz is chair and professor of the Department of Cinema and Photographyat Southern Illinois University and is the author of Bewitched (Wayne State UniversityPress, 2007) and Engaging Film Criticism: Film History and Contemporary AmericanCinema.February 2012, 5 x 7, 144 Pages, 20 IllustrationsISBN 978-0-8143-3372-3, $15.95s Papere“Once more, Walter Metz has provided a careful, intellectuallysatisfying take on a significant piece of artistic expression.

Film and Television Studies | Video GamesBefore the CrashEarly Video Game HistoryEdited by Mark J. P. WolfContributors examine the early days of video game historybefore the industry crash of 1983 that ended the medium’sgolden age.Following the first appearance of arcade video games in 1971 and home videogame systems in 1972, the commercial video game market was exuberant withfast-paced innovation and profit. New games, gaming systems, and technologiesflooded into the market until around 1983, when sales of home game systemsdropped, thousands of arcades closed, and major video game makers sufferedsteep losses or left the market altogether. In Before the Crash: Early Video Game History,editor Mark J. P. Wolf assembles essays that examine the fleeting golden ageof video games, an era sometimes overlooked for older games’ lack of availabilityor their perceived “primitiveness” when compared to contemporary video games.In twelve chapters, contributors consider much of what was going on during thepre-crash era: arcade games, home game consoles, home computer games, handheldgames, and even early online games. The technologies of early video gamesare investigated, as well as the cultural context of the early period—from aesthetic,economic, industrial, and legal perspectives. Since the video game industry andculture got their start and found their form in this era, these years shaped much ofwhat video games would come to be. This volume of early history, then, not onlyhelps readers to understand the pre-crash era, but also reveals much about thepresent state of the industry.Before the Crash will give readers a thorough overview of the early days of videogames along with a sense of the optimism, enthusiasm, and excitement of thosetimes. Students and teachers of media studies will enjoy this compelling volume.Mark J. P. Wolf is a professor in the Communication Department at ConcordiaUniversity Wisconsin.

Jewish Studies | Holocaust StudiesThe Golem ReduxFrom Prague to Post-Holocaust FictionElizabeth R. BaerTraces the history of the golem legend and its appropriationsin German texts and film as well as in post-Holocaust Jewish-American fiction, comics, graphic novels, and television.First mentioned in the Book of Psalms in the Hebrew Bible, the golem is a characterin an astonishing number of post-Holocaust Jewish-American novels and hasserved as inspiration for such varied figures as Mary Shelley’s monster in her novelFrankenstein, a frightening character in the television series The X-Files, and comicbook figures such as Superman and the Hulk. In The Golem Redux: From Prague toPost-Holocaust Fiction, author Elizabeth R. Baer introduces readers to these variedrepresentations of the golem and traces the history of the golem legend acrossmodern pre- and post-Holocaust culture. In five chapters, The Golem Redux examinesthe different purposes for which the golem has been used in literature andwhat makes the golem the ultimate text and intertext for modern Jewish writers.Baer begins by introducing several early manifestations of the golem legend, includingtexts from the third and fourth centuries and from the medieval period;Prague’s golem legend, which is attributed to the Maharal, Rabbi Judah Loew;the history of the Josefov, the Jewish ghetto in Prague, the site of the golem legend;and versions of the legend by Yudl Rosenberg and Chayim Bloch, whichinformed and influenced modern intertexts. In the chapters that follow, Baer tracesthe golem first in pre-Holocaust Austrian and German literature and film and laterin post-Holocaust American literature and popular culture, arguing that the golemhas been deployed very differently in these two contexts. Where prewar Germanand Austrian contexts used the golem as a signifier of Jewish otherness to underscoregrowing anti-Semitic cultural feelings, post-Holocaust American texts usethe golem to depict the historical tragedy of the Holocaust and to imagine alternativesto it. In this section, Baer explores traditional retellings by Isaac BashevisSinger and Elie Wiesel, the considerable legacy of the golem in comics, MichaelChabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, and, finally, “Golems to theRescue” in twentieth- and twenty-first-century works of film and literature, includingthose by Cynthia Ozick, Thane Rosenbaum, and Daniel Handler.By placing the Holocaust at the center of her discussion, Baer illustrates how thegolem works as a self-conscious intertextual character who affirms the value ofimagination and story in Jewish tradition. Students and teachers of Jewish literatureand cultural history, film studies, and graphic novels will appreciate Baer’spioneering and thought-provoking volume.“Demonstrating a lively sense of subject and a high degreeof critical insight. . . this book will be of particular interest toreaders drawn to ponder the possibilities of imaginative literatureafter the Holocaust.”—Alvin H.

Distributed TitlesRemnantStonesThe JewishCemeteries andSynagogues ofSuriname: EssaysAviva Ben-Ur with RachelFrankelA historical and culturaloverview of Suriname’s Jewish community, with specialemphasis on its Jewish and Creole cemeteries.In the 1660s, Jews of Iberian ancestry, many of them fleeing Inquisitorialpersecution, established an agrarian settlement in the midst of theSurinamese tropics. The heart of this community—Jodensavanne, orJews’ Savannah—became an autonomous village with its own Jewishinstitutions, including a majestic synagogue consecrated in 1685.Situated along the Suriname River, some fifty kilometers from the capitalcity of Paramaribo, Jodensavanne was by the mid-eighteenth centurysurrounded by dozens of Jewish plantations sprawling north- andsouthward and dominating the stretch of the river. These Sephardiownedplots, mostly devoted to the cultivation and processing of sugar,carried out primarily by enslaved Africans, collectively formed thelargest Jewish agricultural community in the world at the time and theonly Jewish settlement in the Americas granted virtual self-rule.Sephardi settlement paved the way for the influx of hundreds of AshkenaziJews, who began to migrate in the late seventeenth centuryfrom western and central Europe. Generally banned from Jodensavanne,these newcomers settled in Paramaribo, where they establishedtheir own cemeteries and historic synagogue, deeply influenced bytheir European Jewish predecessors. Meanwhile, slave rebellions, Maroonattacks, the general collapse of Suriname’s economy, soil depletion,absentee land ownership, and a ravaging fire all contributed tothe demise of the old Savannah settlement beginning in the secondhalf of the eighteenth century.This project’s points of departure are three Sephardi cemeteries, whosemonuments date from 1666 to 1904; one Ashkenazi cemetery, whosemonuments date from the 1680s to the late nineteenth century; theCreole (Afro-Surinamese) cemetery in Jodensavanne, dating to the latenineteenth century at the latest, and the remains of the seventeenthcenturysynagogue in Jodensavanne. This second volume complimentsthe first, which presented transcriptions, English translations,and photographs and annotations of more than 1,600 gravestones,accompanied by scaled plans of for of the cemeteries.February 2012, 6 x 9, 152 Pages, 17 IllustrationsISBN 978-0-87820-251-5, $35.00s ClothPublished by Hebrew Union College Press and distributed by Wayne StateUniversity PressChecking the Pulse ofLake ErieEdited by M.
