America Under Construction : Boundaries and Identities in Popular Culture Hardback
Edited by Kristi S. Long, Matthew Nadelhaft
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Cultural Studies series
A variety of theoretical approaches to the study of culture have emphasised the significance of the creation, maintenance, and the transgression of boundaries to identities - be they social, cultural, national or personal.
The essays collected in this book, first published in 1997, explore the creation of identities in American culture through analysis of the boundaries within and across which American identity is negotiated.
The dissemination of cultural identity and the creation of national identity through this process has had a crucial impact on the shape of social life in post-war American culture.
The contributors to this volume offer a variety of perspectives on this richly complicated process.
