This product is not available in the selected currency.

Descripció

The foreigner is a familiar character in popular crime fiction, from the foreign detective whose outsider status provides a unique perspective on a familiar or exotic location to the xenophobic portrayal of the criminal other. Exploring popular crime fiction from across the world. The Foreign in International Crime Writing examines these popular works as transcultural contact zones in which writers can tackle such issues as national identity, immigration, globalization and diaspora communities. Offering readings of 20th and 21st century crime writing from Norway, the UK, India, China, Europe and Australasia, the essays in this book open up new directions for scholarship on crime writing and transnational literatures.
