American Cultural Studies: A Reader shows how the burgeoning field of Cultural Studies has been taken up and developed in the United States. The book is a panorama of great writing and powerful ideas illustrating a particularly American response to questions of power and identity in the politics of culture. More than forty selections from key figures in the 'New Journalism', cultural theory, the social sciences, humanities, and visual arts are gathered together in seven sections, each one introduced by helpful contextualising notes. The book also includes illustrations that serve to extend the themes of each section in visual terms. An introductory chapter explains the editorial selection and offers a new account of Cultural Studies and American Studies in relation to American culture. The Epilogue then goes on to suggest new ways of doing Cultural Studies, and of thinking about America in particular, via the Internet.

MEDIA REVIEWS
good range of historical perspectives and theorectical approaches which are relevant and flexible enough to be used in conjunction with other course materials. * Dr Jessica Maynard, Lecturer, King's College London *
`An outstanding collection; both original and definitive. It will clearly provoke strong interest and heated debate in this country, and will be a collection most of us will want to own. It makes a serious contribution to the existing literature.' Henry Jenkins, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
`This collection looks like a winner. I know of no other competing work that combines a broad understanding of cultural studies with particular attention to the study of the United States. The editors have conceived the volume in the most compelling way.' Mark Poster, University of California, Irvine
