Hip Figures
A Literary History of the Democratic Party 
Michael F. Szalay 
Hip Figures
dramatically altersour understanding o the post-war American novel by show-ing how it mobilized antasieso black style on behal o theDemocratic Party. Fascinated by  jazz, rhythm and blues, and rock and roll, novelists such as Nor-man Mailer, Ralph Ellison, JohnUpdike, and Joan Didion turnedto hip culture to negotiate the voter realignments then reshap-ing national politics. Figuratively transporting white proessionalsand managers into the skins o Arican Americans, these novel-ists and many others insistedon their own importance to theambitions o a party dependenton coalition-building but notully committed to integration.

America’sCorporate Art
Te Studio Authorshipof Hollywood MotionPictures
Jerome Christensen
Contrary to theories o singleperson authorship,
 America’sCorporate Art 
argues that thecorporate studio is the authoro Hollywood motion pictures,both during the classical era o the studio system and beyond,when studios became players inglobal dramas staged by mas-sive entertainment conglomer-ates. Hollywood movies areexamples o a commodity that,until the digital age, was rare:a sel-advertising artiact thatmarkets the studio’s brand inthe very act o consumption.
“This highy origia ad gag-ig study maks a sigicatcotriutio to Amrica mhistory ad to m ad mdiathory, particuary mdia idus-try studis. no othr author hasaayzd studio authorship withth dpth, car, ad compxitythat Christs xhiits hr,or has such a argumt supportd with cos radigs o idividua ms.”

Comics and the History of wenty-First-Century Storytelling
Jared Gardner
argues that the seem-ingly sudden visibility o comicsis no accident. Beginning withthe parallel development o nar-rative comics at the turn o the20th century, comics have longbeen a orm that invites—indeedrequires—readers to help shapethe stories being told. oday, withthe rise o interactive media, thecreative techniques and the read-ing practices comics have beenexperimenting with or a century are now in universal demand.Recounting the history o comicsrom the nineteenth-century riseo sequential comics to the news-paper strip, through comic booksand underground comix, to thegraphic novel and webcomics,Gardner shows why they oer thebest models or rethinking story-telling in the twenty-rst century.
