Hat Amerika eine andere Auffassung vom Krieg als Europa? Eine mogliche Antwort darauf ergibt sich aus der Analyse der nordamerikanischen Kriegsliteratur. Die gesellschaftliche Haltung zur Gewalt entwickelt sich parallel zu ihrer Darstellung in Buchern und Gedichten. Autoren und Leser beeinflussen sich wechselseitig und pflegen und bewahren das kulturelle Erbe Amerikas, das seit den Pilgervatern Gewaltakzeptanz beinhaltet. Die Arbeit untersucht alle Formen der nordamerikanischen Kriegsprosa und -lyrik, auch und gerade sogenannte Popularliteratur. Sie geht chronologisch von Krieg zu Krieg vor. Dabei wird neben den kontemporaren Werken auch auf in spateren Epochen erschienene eingegangen. Extrakapitel werden Comic, Allotopie, Frauen- und Minoritatenliteratur gewidmet. Die Existenz amerikanischer Antikriegsliteratur wird hinterfragt, die Affinitat der Amerikaner zu Heldentum wird beleuchtet. Am Schluss wird eine Aussage zur Unwahrscheinlichkeit der Abkehr der USA von der Neigung zu gewaltsamen Interventionen getroffen."

Duncan is in the throes of a mid-life crisis and searching for his own identity. His problems seem no different than other men facing the same issues, but as he struggles through a divorce and the challenges of co-parenting his children, Duncan soon realizes that he feels complete inside only when he begins to secretly explore a world of torture and death-a world that only he controls. Suddenly, Duncan's life is no longer normal at all. As Duncan deals with his newfound guilty pleasure of destruction and wickedness, his diary entries reflect a roller coaster psychological journey. Duncan grapples with the ramifications of what he is becoming, but at the same time, graphically describes the deaths of several of his victims. Clearly a man caught between his morals and an evil calling. Duncan leads a seemingly typical life during the day, but in the dark of night becomes a monster. Only one man suspects what Duncan is capable of-his best friend, Sudhir, a detective in the Palo Alto Police Department. Despite Duncan's cries for help penned on the pages of his diary, he becomes a master at hiding his transformation from "the guy next door" to a masterful serial killer.

Unfinished Business

Screening the Italian Mafia in the New Millennium

Unfinished Business is the first book to examine Italian mafia cinema of the past decade. It provides insightful analyses of popular films that sensationalize violence, scapegoat women, or repress the homosexuality of male protagonists. Dana Renga examines these works through the lens of gender and trauma theory to show how the films engage with the process of mourning and healing mafia-related trauma in Italy. Unfinished Business argues that trauma that has yet to be worked through on the national level is displaced onto the characters in the films under consideration. In a mafia context, female characters are sacrificed and non-normative sexual identities are suppressed in order to solidify traditional modes of viewer identification and to assure narrative closure, all so that the image of the nation is left unblemished.
