Guts and Glory: The Making of the American Military Image in Film is the definitive study of the symbiotic relationship between the film industry and the United States armed services. Since the first edition was published nearly two decades ago, the nation has experienced several wars, both on the battlefield and in movie theatres and living rooms at home. Now author Lawrence Suid has extensively revised and expanded his classic history of the mutual exploitation of the film industry and the military, exploring how Hollywood has reflected and effected changes in America's image of its armed services. This significantly expanded edition has been brought completely up to date and includes many of the most recent war films, such as Saving Private Ryan, U-571, Pearl Harbor, and Windtalkers. Lawrence H. Suid, a military historian, is the author of several books and has recently appeared on The History Channel, Turner Classic Movies, and CNN. He lives in Greenbelt, Maryland.

The fairy tale may be one of the most important cultural and social influences on children's lives. But until Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion, little attention had been paid to the ways in which the writers and collectors of tales used traditional forms and genres in order to shape children's lives – their behavior, values, and relationship to society. As Jack Zipes convincingly shows, fairy tales have always been a powerful discourse, capable of being used to shape or destabilize attitudes and behavior within culture. For this new edition, the author has revised the work throughout and added a new introduction bringing this classic title up to date.

Max Lüthi zeigt uns, dass das Volksmärchen kein isoliertes und kurioses Phänomen, sondern ein spezifischer Bestandteil der gesamten menschlichen Kultur und Hochliteratur ist. "Kein anderer Forscher hat die Verbindungen der Märchenforschung mit der Literaturwissenschaft wieder so eng geknüpft wie er. Vor allem versteht Lüthi, jeden auch noch so einfachen Text nach seinen Leitworten zu befragen und so zu einer wesentlichen Aussage zu gelangen." (Lutz Röhrich). Dennoch wird der Lesegenuss weder durch übertriebene Wissenschaftlichkeit noch durch überspitzte Interpretationen getrübt. Ein Buch, das nicht nur Märchenkenner mitreißen wird.
