by Gilbert Bonifas (University of Nice) (Editor)
This volume presents essays by participants at the 2001 Nice colloquium whose papers engaged with aspects of anglophone literature and civilisation.
Going beyond the currently best established connotations of the term, the essays in this volume explore the multi-faceted nature of 'resistance' through examples taken from the literary, political and religious history of Britain and the United States of America.
