Cultural paradigms reference archetypal frames of thought, while .

The American cultural ethos rests on this sort of continuance, which inspires perpetuating motifs and recurrent ideas to enter the production process. The black male body is a core element in modern American visual culture, and it is produced under a regime of cultural violence, which employs stereotypical imagery, fragmentation and re- inscription of meaning as essential means of regulation.

Assembling a rich archive of images and texts from the eighteenth century to the present, Rachel Hall offers a history of the "wanted" poster, examining its uses, patterns of circulation, and formal development as an iconic print genre. Her narrative covers a wide range of images: execution broadsides, runaway slave notices, private detective posters, FBI posters, artists' approximations, and the depiction of key figures in the "war on terror." Hall's cultural analysis has profound implications for our understanding of contemporary American fantasies of vulnerability, projection of enemies around the world, and adoption of security measures in domestic and foreign policy.

Wanted will appeal not only to students and scholars in literary studies, cultural studies, and art history but also to readers more generally interested in society's outlaws and in the test of wills between law enforcement and criminal evasion.
