Ars Americana Ars Politica
Ars Americana, Ars Politica: Partisan Expression in Contemporary American Literature and Culture is a 2010 critical study by Peter Swirski. The book examines contemporary American political literature and culture in the context of American politics and history. It examines not only the partisan credentials of what it argues is a new brand of art engagé but also the nobrow style in which it conducts its political business. Nominated for a dozen major awards it attracted equal plaudits from the left (Howard Zinn touted it as “fascinating and original”) and from the right (Financial Times ).
