"The lacerating and effete precision of the ideological wars that define cultural studies is refreshingly absent here. . . . This is an ideal book for a student or scholar who is new to the field or for an international scholar interested in exploring the American terrain of cultural studies. . . . [A] fine, gracefully written, and thoughtful volume."
(John J. Pauly Journal of American History
