Editorial Reviews


The impressive scope of Mizruchi's volume will prove useful for those seeking a survey of the period's multiplicity of texts and perspectives.--Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era

[A] fascinating study of the convergence of capitalist development and ethnic identity. . . . Highly recommended.--Choice

A compelling and informative study of American culture in the latter third of the nineteenth century.--Yearbook of German-American Studies

This is a great book, well written and well thought through. Anyone interested in print culture should read it and use it as a model for further work on the role of print culture in shaping culture and multiculturalism.--American Historical Review

Mizruchi's sprawling narrative is impressive, well written, and well illustrated (her readings of photographs and advertisements are compelling, if daring) and, overall, a must-read for anyone interested in capitalist print culture at the turn of the last century.--Journal of American History

A remarkably comprehensive, meticulously researched, and lucidly written account of her subject.--American Literary History

Takes the reader on a comprehensive journey through many of the major prose writings of the Gilded Age.--H-Net

A comprehensive journey through many of the major prose writings of the Gilded Age--H-Net

As a disciplinary achievement in English literary studies [Mizruchi's] book admirably succeeds in this. . . . Could be a very useful text for upper-level literature courses surveying the period, for it gives a robust and lively context for the writing. Moreover, paralleling the customary lecture sequencing of such courses, the book's eight thematic chapters unfold in a rough chronology.--American Studies

[Mizruchi's] argument is deft and appealing and deserves to be taken very seriously. . . . Mizruchi has put her finger on a critical moment in American literary history and identifies a compelling confluence of themes that made the period so generative. . . . Stands to inspire new questions about the history of multicultural thinking in America.--Studies in American Culture


Susan Mizruchi interweaves approaches from women's studies, Black studies, and Native American studies into close readings of major and minor figures of American literature to produce an impressively comprehensive study that should be of interest to the scholar of literature as well as to the historian and the sociologist.--Werner Sollors, Harvard University

|A capacious yet focused and illuminating book. Mizruchi brilliantly shows multiculturalism, capitalism, and literature to be utterly entwined. Smart and persuasive at all turns, the book is full of savvy starting points and sharp contextualizations that will serve teachers as well as scholars.--Thomas J. Ferraro, Duke University
