By Andrew N. Rubin

Combining literary, cultural, and political historical past, and in response to large archival learn, together with formerly unseen FBI and CIA files, Archives of Authority argues that cultural politics--specifically America's usually covert patronage of the arts--played a hugely vital position within the move of imperial authority from Britain to the USA in the course of a serious interval after global battle II. Andrew Rubin argues that this move reshaped the postwar literary house and he indicates how, in this time, new and effective modes of cultural transmission, replication, and travel--such as radio and swiftly and globally circulated journals--completely reworked the placement occupied via the postwar author and the function of worldwide literature.

Rubin demonstrates that the approximately prompt translation of texts via George Orwell, Thomas Mann, W. H. Auden, Richard Wright, Mary McCarthy, and Albert Camus, between others, into interrelated journals that have been backed through enterprises equivalent to the CIA's Congress for Cultural Freedom and circulated around the globe successfully reshaped writers, critics, and intellectuals into simply recognizable, transnational figures. Their paintings shaped a brand new canon of global literature that used to be celebrated within the usa and supposedly represented the simplest of latest inspiration, whereas much less politically beautiful authors have been overlooked or maybe demonized. This championing and demonizing of writers happened within the identify of anti-Communism--the new, transatlantic "civilizing mission" during which postwar cultural and literary authority emerged.
