This book offers a unique analysis of the wide-ranging responses of British novelists to the East-West conflict. Hammond analyses the treatment of such geopolitical currents as communism, nuclearism, clandestinity, decolonisation and US superpowerdom, and explores the literary forms which writers developed to capture the complexities of the age.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"British Fiction and the Cold War by Andrew Hammond demonstrates that the Cold War was part of everyday British life, and that British literature ... . His breadth of exploration of Cold War themes in literature is of great value and Hammond's monograph will be seen as vital for students seeking to study British literature and the Cold War. ... useful to scholars in better understanding the interactions between Cold War cultures, the state and populations of East and West." (Nicholas Barnett, Journal of Contemporary History, Vol. 52 (3), 2017)
