The Decades Series
Exploring fiction produced in Britain during the 1950s, scholars cover a decade of change; "the choices of Master Samwise:" rethinking 1950s fiction; angry young men: a product of their time; "mere bird-watching indeed:" feminist anthropology and 1950s female fiction; "Is it a queer book:" re-reading the 1950s homosexual novel; a vision of the future: race and anti-racism in 1950s fiction; detective fiction and the prose of everyday life: Agatha Christie, Margery Allingham, Ngaio Marsh, and Gladys Mitchell in the 1950s; and chance in the canon: uncertainty and the literary establishment of the 1950s.
