Here, he expands his vision to encompass the global stage, and tells the story of how books changed the future of the world as we know it in one unforgettable year.

This engaging study returns to a truly remarkable year, the year in which both Ulysses and The Waste Land were published, in which The Great Gatsby was set, and during which the Fascisti took over in Italy, the Irish Free State was born, the Harlem Renaissance reached its peak, Charlie Chaplin's popularity crested, and King Tutankhamen's tomb was discovered.

North puts paid to the idea that literary modernism can be distinguished from contemporary popular culture on any of the elitist traditional grounds-superior self-consciousness, allusiveness, irony, etc. Yet it's amazing that A masterpiece. North read everything published in the US and England in 1922. That's already scary, but then he goes on to demonstrate that he is in fact smarter than everyone else. Almost all of his readings are awesome, and his theoretical heart is in the right place.

Additionally I find provocative North's treatment of such issues as questions of representation of the colonized Other in his readings of newspaper photography, and his wholly original counterintuitive view of how far ahead the reading, listening and watching public often was of the various "avant-gardes" of the day.

For all those reasons, Reading 1922 is a book well worth reading-though not, I would hope, one whose methodology.

This engaging study returns to a truly remarkable year, the year in which both Ulysses and The Waste Land were published, in which The Great Gatsby was set, and during which the Fascisti took over in Italy, the Irish Free State was born, the Harlem Renaissance reached its peak, Charlie Chaplin's popularity crested, and King Tutankhamen's tomb was discovered. In short, the year which not only in hindsight became the primal scene of literary modernism but which served as the cradle for a host of major political and aesthetic transformations resonating around the globe. In his previous study, the acclaimed Dialect of Modernism (OUP, 1994), Michael North looked at the racial and linguistic struggles over the English language which gave birth to the many strains of modernism. Here, he expands his vision to encompass the global stage, and tells the story of how books changed the future of the world as we know it in one unforgettable year.

watching to future
Michael North's Reading 1922 is a brilliant, insightful work bringing to light connections and links between heretofore unexamined disciplines such as anthropology and philosophy (esp. Wittgentstein) and the relation the emerging new forms of thought bore to the popular culture of the time. North demonstrates reciprocal or dialectical relations between changes in mass consciousness via new media and changes in thought and practice in the arts and sciences. I especially appreciate that this work is not just a review or timeline of events but rather a deeper exploration of themes such as alienation and changes in identity as exemplified by Charlie Chaplin for instance, and his public. Additionally I find provocative North's treatment of such issues as questions of representation of the colonized Other in his readings of newspaper photography, and his wholly original counterintuitive view of how far ahead the reading, listening and watching public often was of the various "avant-gardes" of the day.

The book itself is fantastic---I'm just telling you what the Kindle edition does and doesn't have. It's fine for straight reading of the main text, but there are some serious shortcomings for any other use.

Pros:
-typeface is nicely rendered
-all images are included

Cons:
-OCR is not perfect---seems to have had particular issues with italics and numbers---so text is not 100% searchable
-does NOT have page numbers (just location numbers)
-endnotes are NOT linked (and the notes are organized by chapter, so hunting for the right note #33 is a real pain)
