Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

American Studies is an unprecedented anthology that charts the evolution of American Studies from the end of World War II to the present day, showcasing dozens of essays that represent the best in American scholarship. Through this set of carefully selected key essays by an editorial board of expert scholars, the book demonstrates how changes in the field have produced new genealogies that tell different histories of both America and the study of America. The volume also includes writings from earlier eras to show how changing perspectives have enabled older concepts and debates to emerge in different contexts, casting new light on their significance and impact.

Format: Paperback
I have not read the book, but I was thrilled by the titles of the individual essays and the editor's choice. It promised to be an excellent overview of the field. Thanks to another reviewer, I was careful to notice that the essays are not complete but chopped out versions of originals published in a variety of sources. Although I would love to have access to all of them, to buy this anthology would have been a waste of money. I gave 3 starts because it would be unfair to give less to a book I have not read, but the editorial choice is simply disappointing.

Simply the best anthology of its kind right now. The editorial introductions to each part and the way it traces developments in the field are real treasures, not to mention the diverse and hard-hitting selections. Highly recommended.

It's a text book, guys. It's good but also bad, if you know what I mean.
