Synopsis

"A New Introduction to AMerican Studies 4th edition "provides a coherent portrait of American history, literature, culture and society, and also deals with some of the central themes and preoccupations of American life. Using fundamental influences like the machine and the city, and subjects such as imagery and icongraphy, myth, national identity, ideology, popular culture and painting are analysed in order to provoke students into thinking about what it actually means to study a culture. For introductory undergraduate courses in American Studies, American History and American Literature.

Buchrückseite

A NEW INTRODUCTION TO AMERICAN STUDIES conveys, through 16 broad-ranging and superbly written essays, the continuing importance of American Studies and the excitement to be gained from its study. Replacing the classic "AN INTRODUCTION TO AMERICAN STUDIES," this new book provides a comprehensive and clear-sighted re-evaluation of America's place in the world and the often tangled paths that led her there. All the essays have been newly commissioned for this edition and draw on the expertise of younger scholars, whose ideas reflect the changes that have transformed the discipline in the last 25 years. A NEW INTRODUCTION TO AMERICAN STUDIES thus provides a wholly contemporary view of the central themes and pre-occupations of American life. Ideals such as the commitment to liberty, equality and material progress are fully examined and new light is shed on the sometimes contradictory ways in which these ideals have informed the nation's history and culture.

Vital, engaged and thoroughly engaging, A NEW INTRODUCTION TO AMERICAN STUDIES is essential reading for all students of America, it's history, literature and politics. The general reader, too, will find much of interest in this sophisticated and subtle exploration of the diverse factors that have shaped - and continue to shape - the America we think we know today.

Howard Temperley is Emeritus Professor of American History at the University of East Anglia. Christopher Bigsby is Professor of American Studies and Director of the Arthur Miller Centre at the University of East Anglia.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Meh. 26. November 2014
Von @jasonk5322 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is a little dated, and comes from an awkward perspective, since most of the contributors are from the UK. On the front of the book, a British professor is quoted, saying that this is a book that every student of American Studies should have on their shelf. I would disagree. Although the perspective lacks much of the preconceived and overused cliches that exist in many American classrooms, it also lacks a passion for America that it deserves. There were times I felt as though the writers were competing to see who could use the most polysyllabic words in one sentence. Isn't brevity the soul of wit? Tell that to the contributors of this book. The only one of them that seems to understand that is a woman, writing about women's issues in America. Her chapter was by far the best of the bunch. Personally, I'm happy to be finished reading it.
