M. E. Sarotte - Not one inch. America, Russia, and the Making of Post-Cold War Stalemate (Hörbuch)

In der Krise um den russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine 2022/23 brachten die Gegner*innen einer Sanktionspolitik gegenüber Russland und Unterstützungspolitik für die Ukraine häufig das Argument vor, dass die NATO zumindest eine Mitschuld an dem russischen Angriff trage, da sie durch ihre Osterweiterung und damit eine Verschiebung der strategischen Peripherie nach Russlands Grenzen hin einen sicherheitspolitischen Druck erzeugt habe, den Moskau durch eigene Handlungen erleichtern zu suchen müsste.

Pioneering comics researcher Joseph Witek argued in his study Comic Books as History (1989) that the (re-)presentation of the past in comics has been an integral element in the early transformations of comics culture during the 1970s that initiated the advent of the graphic novel. Since Art Spiegelman’s 1992 reception of the Pulitzer Prize for Maus, comics have received wider public attention and nonfiction graphic narratives can be considered a notable element of Western media culture, with historical events among the most prominent topics they explore. In fact, Maus has become such an established part of the teaching canon by now that it even found itself caught up in the culture wars after a Tennessee school board voted to remove the book from its eighth-grade curriculum, sparking international backlash.

Most recently, the continued transnational interest in documentary graphic narratives was visible in the awarding of the German Geschwister-Scholl-Preis in 2021 to Joe Sacco, another renowned U.S.
