Books By Author Patrick McGee
Bad History and the Logics of Blockbuster Cinema, Hardback (December 2011)
McGee studies historical representation in commodified, popular cinema as expressions of historical truths that more authentic histories usually miss and argues for the political and social significance of mass culture through the interpretation of four recent big-budget movies: Titanic, Gangs of New York, Australia, and Inglourious Basterds.
Theory and the Common from Marx to Badiou, Hardback (May 2009)
Using a method that combines analysis, memoir, and polemic, McGee writes experimentally about a series of thinkers who ruptured linguistic and social hierarchies, from Marx, to Gramsci, to Badiou.
