About this book

This book offers a unique analysis of the wide-ranging responses of British novelists to the East-West conflict. Hammond analyses the treatment of such geopolitical currents as communism, nuclearism, clandestinity, decolonisation and US superpowerdom, and explores the literary forms which writers developed to capture the complexities of the age.

Reviews

"British Fiction and the Cold War is a real map of the territory, suggesting lines of enquiry as well as, with specific cases, doing sterling work contextualizing and analyzing the text to demonstrate the Cold War focus as workable hermeneutically. The Cold War frame picks out the ideology underpinning the withdrawal from empire, and the revolutionary rhetoric and right wing propaganda structuring the conflict between militant and conservative forces in the UK. An excellent book, much needed." - Adam Piette, University of Sheffield, UK
