In this fully revised and expanded edition of this popular pocket-sized reference book the authors offer a comprehensive and critical overview of the Tintin series. Starting with the character's humble origins in the children's supplement of a Belgian catholic newspaper in the 1920s, the authors track Tintin's development and success throughout the decades, including the stormy World War II years. Each book is analyzed in detail, both in the context of the series, and in its larger framework: that of the comic's medium and of society in general. The authors also look at the massive industry that has developed round the figure of Tintin, the trivia, the anecdotes, the movies, and television series, and the multitude of Tintin spin-offs.

"Author of the critically acclaimed Tintin and the World of Hergé and the last person to interview Remi, Benoit Peeters tells the complete story behind Hergé's origins and shows how and why the nom de plume grew into a larger-than-Remi personality as Tintin's popularity exploded. Drawing on interviews and using recently uncovered primary sources for the first time, Peeters reveals Remi as a neurotic man who sought to escape the troubles of his past by allowing Hergé's identity to subsume his own. As Tintin adventured, Hergé lived out a romanticized version of life for Remi."--Jacket.

Deterritorialization, translocality, globalization, postcolonial, postnational, transnational: we are in the midst of a redefinition of space. In the very moment that national and ethnic boundaries are breaking down we encounter paradoxical reinvestments in homeland, territorial integrity, localism, regionalism, and race- and ethnocentrism. How do we make sense of this contradictory mapping of global and local space? How do we understand state and national systems of sovereignty as geographic or place-centered dramas of domination? How do we maneuver between incommensurable histories of the regional and transnational in a postmodern world? The contributors to The Geography of Identity are at the forefront of the new social geography. Their essays investigate a range of topics as categories of analysis we have to reimagine. Contributors include Arjun Appadurai on deterritorialization and the postnational; Joseph Boone on queer desire and urban space; Achille Mbembe on the political culture of the postcolony; Nuala Ni Dhomhnaill on psychic homelands and Irish placenames; Pieter Judson on the geographies of German nationalism; Rashid Khalidi on the repressions within Palestinian historiography; Mark Liechy on media politics in Nepal; Billie Melman on British colonialism and the veil; Saskia Sassen on globalized urban economies and minority laborers; Michael Watts on the interactive geographies of Islam and capitalism in Nigeria; Gwendolyn Wright on the effects of the local on modernist architecture; Victoria Wolcott on African-American numbers-runners and Detroit's underground economy; Bernard Williams on the moral philosophy of space; and Anton Shammas on autocartography. With its explorations of the urban heteroclite, the postcolony and nativist ideologies of place, this volume promises to be a groundbreaking contribution to the remapping of global and local cartographies of culture. Patricia Yaeger is Associate Professor of English and Women's Studies, University of Michigan.

Westerners have long imagined the Himalayas as the world’s last untouched place and a repository of redemptive power and wisdom. Beatniks, hippie seekers, spiritual tourists, mountain climbers—diverse groups of people have traveled there over the years, searching for their own personal Shangri-La. In Far Out, Mark Liechty traces the Western fantasies that captured the imagination of tourists in the decades after World War II, asking how the idea of Nepal shaped the everyday cross-cultural interactions that it made possible. Emerging from centuries of political isolation but eager to engage the world, Nepalis struggled to make sense of the hordes of exotic, enthusiastic foreigners. They quickly embraced the phenomenon, however, and harnessed it to their own ends by building tourists’ fantasies into their national image and crafting Nepal as a premier tourist destination. Liechty describes three distinct phases: the postwar era, when the country provided a Raj-like throwback experience for rich Americans; Nepal’s emergence as an exotic outpost of hippie counterculture in the 1960s; and its rebranding into a hip adventure destination, which began in the 1970s and continues today. He shows how Western projections of Nepal as an isolated place inspired creative enterprises and, paradoxically, allowed locals to participate in the global economy. Based on twenty-five years of research, Far Out blends ethnographic analysis, a lifelong passion for Nepal, and a touch of humor to produce the first comprehensive history of what tourists looked for—and found—on the road to Kathmandu.
