A New Introduction to American Studies(2005)
A non fiction book by Christopher Bigsby and Howard Temperley
A New Introduction to American Studies provides a coherent portrait of American history, literature, politics, culture and society, and also deals with some of the central themes and preoccupations of American life. It will provoke students into thinking about what it actually means to study a culture.
Ideals such as the commitment to liberty, equality and material progress are fully examined and new light is shed on the sometimes contradictory ways in which these ideals have informed the nation's history and culture.
For introductory undergraduate courses in American Studies, American History and American Literature.
