By Sabine Doran

This can be the 1st publication to discover the cultural value of the colour yellow, exhibiting how its mental and aesthetic price marked and formed the various highbrow, political, and creative currents of overdue modernity. It contends that yellow features in this interval essentially as a colour of stigma and scandal.

Yellow stigmatization has had an extended historical past: it is going again to the center a long time while Jews and prostitutes have been pressured to put on yellow symptoms to stress their marginal prestige. even if students have commented on those institutions specifically contexts, Sabine Doran deals the 1st overarching account of ways yellow connects disparate cultural phenomena, equivalent to turn-of-the-century decadence (the "yellow nineties"), the increase of mass media ("yellow journalism"), mass immigration from Asia ("the yellow peril"), and mass stigmatization (the yellow superstar that Jews have been pressured to put on in Nazi Germany).

The tradition of Yellow combines cultural heritage with leading edge readings of literary texts and visible artistic endeavors, delivering a multilayered account of the original function performed via the colour yellow in past due 19th- and twentieth-century American and ecu tradition.
