NEW SLAVERIES IN CONTEMPORARY BRITISH LITERATURE AND VISUAL ARTS: THE GHOST AND THE CAMP. Pietro Deandrea. Manchester University Press, 2015. Distributed by Oxford University Press. 201 pp. ISBN 9780719096433 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: This book studies literary and visual representations of the many and diverse forms of slavery in Britain produced by globalisation since the early 1990s. It focuses on a wide range of works, from Ruth Rendell's pioneering crime novel Simisola through to the many authors who concentrated on Britain's new slaves in the first decade of the twenty-first century. Starting with an overview of the sociological and political analyses on the issue, the book develops critical paradigms in the field of cultural and literary studies in order to read the phenomenon of Britain's new slaveries. In doing so, it combines post-colonial and Holocaust studies in an original twin perspective that employs, as interpretive models, the recurrent tropes of the ghost and the concentration camp, whose manifold shapes populate the contemporary British landscape. The volume argues that approaching a topical issue such as new slaveries brings to the fore new, fertile directions for the future of both post-colonial and Holocaust studies, seen here as mutually enriching.
