Set against the backdrop of the Cold War, the war in Iraq, and 9/11, 'A Little History' explores the deep politics of memory and imagination while proposing a new paradigm for American Studies. With preface by editor Fred Dewey, Alcalay's book places the work of major figures like Muriel Rukeyser, Charles Olson, Edward Dorn, Diane di Prima, and Amiri Baraka, in the realm of resistance and global decolonization to assert the power of poetry as a unique form of knowledge. Recognized by Edward Said as "that rare thing, a gifted prose writer and poet, and an accomplished intellectual," Alcalay brings his blend of autobiographical and investigative scholarship to bear on this timely and important book of essays.
