Containment Culture: American Narratives, Postmodernism, and the Atomic Age

Writer word: Donald E. Pease (Series Editor)
------------------

Alan Nadel offers a different research of the increase of yank postmodernism by means of viewing it as a breakdown in chilly warfare cultural narratives of containment. those narratives, which embodied an American postwar overseas coverage charged with checking the unfold of Communism, additionally operated, Nadel argues, inside a large spectrum of cultural existence within the usa to comprise atomic secrets and techniques, sexual license, gender roles, nuclear power, and inventive expression. simply because those narratives have been deployed in motion pictures, books, and magazines at a time whilst American tradition was once for the 1st time in a position to dominate international leisure and capitalize on worldwide construction, containment grew to become essentially the most greatly disseminated and hugely privileged nationwide narratives in history.

Examining a large sweep of yankee tradition, from the paintings of George Kennan to Playboy journal, from the films of Doris Day and Walt Disney to these of Cecil B. DeMille and Alfred Hitchcock, from James Bond to Holden Caulfield, Nadel discloses the amazing pervasiveness of the containment narrative. Drawing subtly on insights supplied by means of modern theorists, together with Baudrillard, Foucault, Jameson, Sedgwick, Certeau, and Hayden White, he situates the rhetoric of the chilly warfare inside a gendered narrative powered by means of the unstated efficiency of the atom. He then strains the breakdown of this discourse of containment via such occasions because the Bay of Pigs invasion and the unfastened Speech circulate at Berkeley, and ties its cave in to the onset of yank postmodernism, typified via works comparable to Catch–22 and the fellow Who Shot Liberty Valence.

An vital paintings of cultural feedback, Containment tradition hyperlinks atomic energy with postmodernism and postwar politics, and indicates how a multifarious nationwide coverage can develop into a part of a nation’s cultural schedule and a resource of that means for its citizenry.
