  Literature and German Reunification - Cambridge University Press   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Previous studies of German literature have tended to avoid the problem of nationhood: this is one of the few books in any language to treat contemporary Germany as a cultural and national unity.
The book discusses German literature from the early 1980s through the late 1990s, with a primary focus on the way in which authors of the 1990s have sought to cope with and respond to reunification and emerging questions about history, politics, and identity.
Larger questions are addressed about the role of both the nation and a national literature in the context of economic and political globalization.

 CREATING INTEPRETIVE POSSIBILITIES WITH LITERATURE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
English literature might be regarded as one of the first Western “colonizing” and globalizing forces to enter and subsequently “decentralize” the homogenous nature of the Chinese classical literary mind.
While biblical literature in the Chinese vernacular has exercised manifold cultural, philosophical, ideological and political influences upon the Chinese, in particular it helped the vernacular (baihua) to establish itself over the classical Chinese (guwen) and promoted general literacy in a society in which public education in the modern Western sense had never been heard of.
Since the prevailing theme of modern Chinese literature was the struggle for national survival in the global context of colonization, Western authors and their works were chosen on the basis of their social criticalness, political subversiveness and moral standards.

 The leisure ethic: work and play in American literature 1840-1949 by William A. Gleason
For many Americans, the final years of Nineteenth Century were a period in which they faced the erosion of the work ethic their fathers had known.
Instead, with the growth of corporate capitalism and its emphasis upon modernising the industrial process through what Frederick Winslow Taylor described as "scientific management" of the workplace, workers frequently found themselves trapped and unable to escape the day to day drudgery of life in the factory.
The central thesis of Gleason's argument in The Leisure Ethic is that throughout this period, nowhere was the debate over play and play theory contested more strenuously than in the literature of the period.

The People's Republic of China was founded in 1949, an event that led to profound changes in Chinese literature.
The requirement that literature serve politics reinforced a preexisting tendency, and with the inception of thought reform and, eventually, The Cultural Revolution, literary independence was all but suffocated.
