Description - A Companion to American Cultural History by Karen Halttunen

In the past few decades, the field of American cultural history has emerged as a central area of interest for American historians. The field now embraces a holistic concept of "culture" as the entire range of practices, representations, languages, and beliefs that make up a particular society's way of life. A Companion to American Cultural History offers a historiographic overview of the scholarship, with special attention to the major studies and debates that have shaped the field, and an assessment of where it is currently headed. Primarily intended for cultural historians and students, the book will also appeal to all readers interested in the significant impact the burgeoning field of cultural history has made on American history scholarship.
