Dime Novels and the Roots of American Detective Fiction, Hardback Book

Dime Novels and the Roots of American Detective Fiction Hardback

Part of the Crime Files series

Description

This book reveals subversive representations of gender, race and class in detective dime novels (1860-1915), arguing that inherent tensions between subversive and conservative impulses-theorized as contamination and containment-explain detective fiction's ongoing popular appeal to readers and to writers such as Twain and Faulkner.
