Re-Framing the Transnational Turn in American Studies . . . is in many ways an attempt to redress some of the inequalities of power within the field conditioned by its Cold War origins. The pluralistic approach . . . suggests that a critical formation that in its most strident moments . . . is not immune to serious critique from within. The collection s editors are willing to represent a spectrum of dialogue containing arguments that, pursued in more depth, could undermine much of the rationale behind a transnational turn in the first place. Re-Framing the Transnational Turn could be said to be as self-critical toward anti-exceptionalism as anti-exceptionalist scholarship itself is to the foundations of American Studies. American Quarterly"
"Re-Framing the Transnational Turn provides arguably the most trenchant and comprehensive critical account of American exceptionalism and transnationalism to date. Pease's introduction is an absolute a tour de force, elucidating the broad sweeps that have marked our field since its formation and punctuated critical innovation over the last decades." --American Literary History
