As Arts Editor for the journal, I'm proud to present David Humphrey's "Ike and Me" in the special Cold War issue of Cultural Politics. Upcoming issues will include artist projects by Nancy Spero, Paul Chan and Sarah Trigg... please stay tuned. Free sample copies can be requested through the Berg website.
Politics is a welcome and innovative addition. In an academic universe
already well populated with journals, it is carving out its own unique
place—broad and a bit quirky. It likes to leap between the theoretical
and the concrete, so that it is never boring and often filled with
illuminating glimpses into the intellectual and cultural worlds. Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina, USA
