About the Author:

Benjamin Rader is the James L. Sellars Professor of History at University of Nebraska at Lincoln. He is well published in the area of US cultural and sports history and is Editor with Randy Roberts of the Sport and Society Series with the University of Illinois Press.

Review:

"Rader is the most useful volume I have found for an introductory course in American Studies. It provides a structured, informative core text around which a variety of ancillary texts from variety of disciplines can comfortably orbit."

"Its (American Ways) greatest strength-among many strengths - is its interpretive clarity. It draws a clear and compelling theme out of a massive amount of historical material. It will help show students how history affects their lives and how we arrived at the historical point we occupy today."
