Arthur Asa Berger (Author)
Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
A murder, just four hours before the Royal Duchess is scheduled to sail for Alaska, and inspector Solomon Hunter and his assistant, Talcott Weems, are summoned to investigate this latest mystery. This delightful whodunit textbook by Arthur Asa Berger is the perfect tool to introduce students to cultural studies theories, in particular the complexities of identity, and also to the foibles of academic life. During the investigation, the reader will encounter several critical theories, including semiotics, postmodernism, feminism, psychoanalysis, and race theory. Of course, identity is also of central importance in Hunter and Weems' own mission: to learn the identity of the murderer!
