By Robert C. Doyle on November 29, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is rare for a scholar to put together a life's work as Peter C. Rollins has done in this outstanding book. For Popular Culture scholars, it's a source beyond comparison, encyclopedic in the treatment of a wide variety of topics such as Will Rogers, World War I and II, the Cold War, and, centrally, Vietnam's troubles with the media. Recommended at the highest level for all readers whose interest in American Culture requires deep description, strong and accurate analysis, and a good humor.

Here we have a welcome collection of many of the highlights of Peter Rollins' work contributing to the evolution of a critical methodology for analysis of American culture. Rollins builds upon his earliest work in the culture of linguistics, the "cowboy philosophy" of Will Rogers, and the ways in which such notables as Harriet Beecher Stowe and John James Audubon contributed to the American spirit. Several of the most valuable chapters are models for an emerging methodlogy for understanding film and television as resources for history. Before this volume made these pieces so readily available, I have found myself repeatedly referring back to the journals in which his writings on documentary films on New Deal environmental issues and the Vietnam War originally appeared to refresh my sensibility to visual language and the ways in which images worked in the context of culture. I recommend this volume wholeheartedly.

Format: Paperback
Using a sharp historical lens, Peter Rollins examines American cultural history--focusing on myriad characters: Will Rogers, Benjamin Lee Whorf, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John James Audubon, and four major wars while explaining how language, satire, and motion pictures mirror the American psyche. Weaving in and out of personal reminiscences and historical interpretations, America Reflected offers especially strong insight into the nation's changing mores during a turbulent period that began with the rudimentary Model-A automobile and ended with high-altitude B-52 bombing attacks. Clearly, this innovative book--written by an experienced author, lecturer, critic, and editor--belongs in every library and research institution.
