Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.
Forged from a partnership between a university press and a library, Project MUSE is a trusted part of the academic and scholarly community it serves. Built on the Johns Hopkins University Campus. A must read for anyone seriously interested in Holocaust studies. It is solid, intelligent, and strongly argued. It reflects the critical literature on NS imagery in our time ably and provides the reader with clear and detailed interpretations of both the novel and film as well as their cultural contexts from contemproary Germany to Hollywood.
With English translations throughout, it is widely accessible to a broad audience. Finally, it represents the first significant investigation into the 'Schlink phenomenon' and therefore makes an important contribution to research that continues to grapple with the legacy of the Holocaust in contemporary German - and American - culture.
