This book takes the Dust Bowl story beyond Depression America to describe the ‘dust bowl’ concept as a transnational phenomenon, where during World War Two, US and Australian national mythologies converged. Dust Bowl begins with Depression America, the New Deal and the US Dust Bowl where massive dust storms darkened the skies of the Great Plains and triggered a major national and international media event and generated imagery describing a failed yeoman dream, Dust Bowl refugees, and the coming of a new American Desert. Dust Bowl traces the evolution of this imagery to Australia, World War Two and New Deal-inspired stories of conservation-mindedness, soil erosion and enemies, sheep-farmers and traitors, creeping deserts and human extinction, super-human housewives and natural disaster and finally, grand visions of a nation-building post-war scheme for Australia’s iconic Snowy River‒that vision became the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme.

Housewives hung wet sheets and blankets over windows and struggled to seal every crack with gummed paper strips. A man avoided shaking hands because the static electricity generated from a dust storm might knock his greeter flat. Children's tears turned to mud. Dead cattle, when pried open, were found filled with pounds of gut-clogging dirt. The simplest thing in life, taking a breath, became life threatening. Conditions in America's prairie during the Dirty Thirties were no blind stroke of nature, however. They had their origins in human error and in the misuse of the land. The Dust Bowl recounts the factors that led to these conditions, how those affected coped, and what can be learned from the tragedy, considered by many to be America's worst prolonged environmental disaster.

This definitive story of American folk music focuses on how a minority music genre suddenly became the emergent voice of a generation at the end of the Eisenhower years. From Kingston Trio's "Tom Dooley" in 1958 to Bob Dylan's electric performance at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965, folk influenced American culture and eventually became absorbed into popular music. The author also explores how authentic folk is now experiencing a second revival, taking its place in our contemporary fascination with roots music.

Hunger, Armut, Hoffnungslosigkeit: Die Große Depression in den 1930er Jahren traf in den USA vor allem Landarbeiter und Farmpächter. Viele von ihnen machten sich auf den Weg gen Westen in der Hoffnung, auf den Plantagen Kaliforniens neue Arbeit zu finden. Präsident Roosevelt versuchte, mit seinem Reformprogramm New Deal Migration und Hunger zu bekämpfen. Auch Künstler thematisierten die Folgen der Wirtschaftskrise in ihren Werken: John Steinbecks weltberühmter Roman Früchte des Zorns erzählt die Geschichte der Familie Joad, die ihre Farm aufgibt und nach Westen zieht; Dorothea Langes Fotografie Migrant Mother wurde zum Sinnbild der Großen Depression. Evelyn Runge arbeitet Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen dem Roman Steinbecks und den Dokumentarfotos Langes heraus. Ausgehend von der Theorie des Konstruktivismus werden biologisch-technische, soziale und mediale Determinanten dargestellt. Das Buch untersucht, inwiefern fiktionale Elemente in Literatur und Fotografie als Medien der Sozialkritik zu finden sind. Eine Analyse produktions- und rezeptionsästhetischer Bedingungen zeigt, dass sowohl literarische wie fotografische Arbeiten polyvalent zu verstehen sind - und nicht per se das Bild der Welt präsentieren, wie der Begriff documentary realism suggeriert.

Woody Guthrie's songs about the Dust Bowl Migration and the Great Depression give expression to one of the bleakest periods in the history of the United States, bearing witness both to the economic and political turmoil and to the human erosion of the 1930s. Following a New Historicist approach, this study, incorporating a variety of previously unpublished materials, sets out to reconstruct the social and cultural potential of Guthrie's songs by exploring their manifold and intricate relationships with the cultural environment in which they were composed and performed. As a result, Guthrie's songs are shown to be deeply ingrained in the decade's culture: they criticize the deplorable social and political situation at the time, make sense of the incomprehensible and hint at those responsible for the disaster, thus amplifying the unheard voices of the down and out. By revealing that Guthrie's oeuvre was not only culturally produced, but also culturally productive in that it took an active part in shaping, perpetuating or undermining elements and patterns of the decade's cultural knowledge, the study also sheds new light on the social and cultural significance of the sung word.
