w. end ave.: an e-journal of culture and politics  

The lead article in this issue compares Eisenstadt's famous Life photo of the end of World War II with a New Yorker cover of a half century later as a way to sum up what transpired in that time. The second article examines the Liberal point of view of the film Amazing Grace. The third article examines the structure of the films in Busby Berkeley's Gold Diggers trilogy. The last article, by Arnold Birenbaum, looks at our current health care crisis.


The purpose of this e-journal is to use in tandem the techniques of literary criticism and social structural analysis to illuminate American politics and the various institutions in American society and sometimes matters more global, like religion or war, by turning an eye on the events and objects and performances that are considered art and entertainment, those defined broadly enough to include whatever is covered in newspapers and other media. Another concern is to pick up the texture of social life, both in the United States and in general, through the analysis of those events, objects and performances that are to be found in everyday life.
