Description - Locating American Studies by Lucy Maddox
This collection of 17 esays first printed in "American Quarterly", the journal of the American Studies Association. To mark the Association's 50th anniversary in 1998, the editor has brought together works by a group of scholars which she believes provide a window into the history and evolution of the practice of American studies. Each essay, originally published between 1950 and 1996 is accompanied by a commentary in which a scholar from a related field provides critical information for understanding the continuing importance of the work to the American Studies field. Contributors include: Gene Wise; Henry Nash Smith; Barbara Welter; Alexander Saxton; and Kevin Mumford.
