Editorial Reviews

Review

“A rich and multifaceted assessment of the field. By interspersing chapters that focus in great detail on a single aspect of American Studies with broader chapters that help contextualize his arguments, Lauter has provided readers with a remarkably thorough, exciting, and satisfying work.”—Emory Elliott, University of California, Riverside


“Every page of this book gives evidence of an academic life spent in and for American Studies. Lauter covers a wide range of topics between the politics of cultural and literary texts and the politics in and beyond the classroom. In a sense, it offers the story of a lifetime—his own and that of his generation.”—Heinz Ickstadt, Freie Universität Berlin


“Paul Lauter, who has been a leading figure in the movement to expand the canon of American literature, is ideally placed to tell the story of American Studies. This book is news.”—Cathy N. Davidson, Former President, American Studies Association
