See also Journal of Aesthetics and Protest – many of the articles of which are free to read online.
If you’re interested in (theories of) the contemporary French novel, this book by Jean-Louis Hippolyte (in English) is worth a read:
Fuzzy Fiction (University of Nebraska Press, 2006)
Terror, Insecurity and Liberty: Illiberal Practices of Liberal Regimes after 9/11, edited by Didier Bigo and Anastassia Tsoukala (Routledge, 2008).
We really liked Marcus Boon’s book, In Praise of Copying, and also the fact that it’s free to download from Harvard University Press.
Just found another great – free – book by Brian Holmes: Escape the Overcode
