- Walt Kelly's Pogo, acknowledged as one of the most important and influential comic strips of all time, first appeared not in newspapers, but as a feature in the Dell comic book anthology Animal Comics, as well as in Dell's Four Color Comics before receiving its own title, Pogo Possum, in 1949. It was here, in the four-color world of comic books, that the feature and its characters grew and matured, ultimately becoming one of the world's most famous comic strips. - With Hermes Press' complete reprint of Dell Comics Pogo, admirers of this groundbreaking comics feature can now witness the strip's evolution, in an archival hardcover, digitally reconstructed to perfection. - This volume reprints the complete Albert the Alligator and Pogo Possum from Four Color Comics #105 and #148, and issues #1-4 of Pogo Possum.

Economy and the Future

A monster stalks the earth—a sluggish, craven, dumb beast that takes fright at the slightest noise and starts at the sight of its own shadow. This monster is the market. The shadow it fears is cast by a light that comes from the future: the Keynesian crisis of expectations. It is this same light that causes the world’s leaders to tremble before the beast. They tremble, Jean-Pierre Dupuy says, because they have lost faith in the future. What Dupuy calls Economy has degenerated today into a mad spectacle of unrestrained consumption and speculation. But in its positive form—a truly political economy in which politics, not economics, is predominant—Economy creates not only a sense of trust and confidence but also a belief in the open-endedness of the future without which capitalism cannot function. In this devastating and counterintuitive indictment of the hegemonic pretensions of neoclassical economic theory, Dupuy argues that the immutable and eternal decision of God has been replaced with the unpredictable and capricious judgment of the crowd. The future of mankind will therefore depend on whether it can see through the blindness of orthodox economic thinking.

Since 1988, J. Hillis Miller has traveled to China to lecture on literary theory, especially the role of globalization in literary theory. Over time, he has assisted in the development of distinctively Chinese forms of literary theory, Comparative Literature, and World Literature. The fifteen lectures gathered in An Innocent Abroad span both time and geographic location, reflecting his work at universities across China for more than twenty-five years. More important, they reflect the evolution of Miller’s thinking and of the lectures’ contexts in China as these have markedly changed over the years, especially on either side of Tiananmen Square and in light of China’s economic growth and technological change. A foreword by the leading theorist Fredric Jameson provides additional context.

Three quarters of the book is focused on Latin America and the Caribbean. Other chapters range across Bosnia, the UK, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Palestine and Crete. The methodology is a mix of anecdotal and analytic."--
