Challenges notions of Cold War American art, culture, and politics.

COLD WAR EXILES IN MEXICO: U.S. Dissidents and the Culture of 
Critical Resistance
Rebecca M. Schreiber
University of Minnesota Press | 336 pages | 2008
ISBN 978-0-8166-4307-3 | hardcover | $67.50

The onset of the Cold War in the 1940s and 1950s precipitated the 
exile of many U.S. writers, artists, and filmmakers to Mexico. 
Rebecca M. Schreiber illuminates the work of these cultural exiles 
and shows how the Cold War culture of political exile challenged 
American exceptionalist ideology and demonstrated the resilience of 
oppositional art, literature, and film in response to state 
repression.

"Rebecca M. Schreiber's groundbreaking study interweaves archival 
historical research with insightful formal analyses of visual art, 
movies, and literature produced by U.S. Cold War exiles in Mexico 
during the 1940s and 1950s. Exploring the exiles' relation to their 
host culture in all of its complexity, Schreiber illuminates the 
collaborative, inter-American dimensions of their innovative 
aesthetic projects. " -Claire F. Fox, The University of Iowa

"Highly original and innovative, Cold War Exiles In Mexico is an 
invaluable contribution to the scholarship on Cold War cultural 
production." -Penny Von Eschen, author of Satchmo Blows Up the World: 
Jazz Ambassadors Play the Cold War

Rebecca M. Schreiber is assistant professor of American studies at
