"Looking for America: The Visual Production of Nation and People" is a groundbreaking collection that explores the 'visual' in defining the kaleidoscope of American experience and American identity in the 20th century. The book covers enduringly important topics in American history: nationhood, class, politics of identity, and the visual mapping of 'others'; and, includes editorial introductions, suggested readings, a primer on how to 'read' an image, and a guide to visual archives and collections. This is a well-illustrated book for those in American Studies and related fields eager to incorporate the visual into their teaching - and telling - of the American story.
