One of the ironies of the post-Cold War world, in which the power of the United States is without rival, is that the costs of isolationism and ignorance are greater than ever. The temptation to imagine that the rest of the world matters less than before is enticing, as America basks in the triumphant glow of a world in which capitalism and democracy, under the aegis of American leadership, are thought to have vanquished all rivals. Although it is unlikely that Americans will come to pay much attention to the rest of the world anytime soon—except when their citizens are threatened or killed abroad, or when they are persuaded that the threat of foreigners doing harm at home seems real—their failure to do so cripples the ability of the United States to understand a world in which American interests, security, and prosperity are embedded to an unprecedented degree. As Others See Us investigates the causes and consequences of the world’s perceptions of America. It proceeds from the premise that the images, ideas, and information that foreign populations have of the United States and Americans come from a number of sources, most of which are mediated. Some of these sources are American, Hollywood especially. Others are located outside the country, in the media, educational, religious, and political systems through which foreign populations learn about America. Any attempt to understand the "what" and "why" of foreign perceptions of America needs to look closely at these external determinants of how the image and interpretation of the United States is constructed in different societies.

Tim und Struppi, Clawdia Chauchat, Settembrini, Mynheer Peeperkorn, Naphta, alle zusammen in einem Hotel in den peruanischen Anden – geht das überhaupt? Der amerikanische Autor Frederic Tuten beweist, daß es geht. In diesem verrückten Abenteuerroman spannt Tuten zwei der berühmtesten Comicfiguren mit einigen der prominentesten Personen der modernen Weltliteratur zusammen. Besonders hübsch die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Madame Chauchat und dem immer noch nicht recht erwachsenen Tim. Sie verführt ihn nach allen Regeln der Kunst einer erfahrenen Frau – und Tim wird endlich ein Mann. Dieser lyrische Abenteuerroman ist natürlich ein ausgewachsener Literaturscherz für Kenner. Indes ist Tuten kreativer Künstler genug, um eine durchaus einleuchtende Geschichte zu erzählen. Auch wer keinerlei Kenntnis von Tintin oder vom ›Zauberberg‹ hat, kommt hier auf seine Kosten.

Herg's Tintin cartoon adventures have been translated into more than fifty languages and read by tens of millions of children aged, as their publishers like to say, 'from 7 to 77'. Arguing that their characters are as strong and their plots as complex as any dreamt up by the great novelists, Tom McCarthy asks a simple question: is Tintin literature? McCarthy takes a cue from Tintin himself, who spends much of his time tracking down illicit radio signals, entering crypts and decoding puzzles and suggests that we too need to 'tune in' and decode if we want to capture what's going on in Herg's work. What emerges is a remarkable story of hushed-up royal descent in both Herge's work and his own family history. McCarthy shows how the themes this story generates - expulsion from home, violation of the sacred, the host-guest relationship turned sour and anxieties around questions of forgery and fakeness - are the same that have fuelled and troubled writers from the classical era to the present day. His startling conclusion is that Tintin's ultimate 'secret' is that of literature itself. Appearing on the eve of the release of a major Steven Spielberg Tintin film, Tintin and the Secret of Literature should be avidly devoured by not only Tintin lovers but also by anyone with an interest in literature, philosophy or art.

"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.

From the black and white pages of a Belgian Catholic newspaper in the late 1920s to the virtual world of a 3D CGI Hollywood movie in 2011, the young adventurous reporter Tintin has come a long way. When Georges Remi, under his nom de plume Herge, sent the crudely drawn hero on his maiden voyage to Communist Russia, little did he know that they were both embarking on a lifelong journey - or in the case of the perpetually youthful Tintin, an eternal mythic quest. Though regarded as mere children's comic books by some, the stories reflect the momentous changes of the twentieth century through the globe-trotting adventures of the young reporter and his companions. They also tell a larger tale - about the author's and our inner world. This book gives an overview of the canon of Tintin adventures for new readers, giving insights into the graphic language of the stories, as well introducing the wider field of Tintinology to non-academic readers. It concludes by assessing the recent adaptation from the page to the screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson.
