Review:

'American Civilization is particularly good at covering the basics while including many important issues left out of most general scholarly texts on American society... it is an approachable text for introducing subjects, it isn't too long or comprehensive, and it is cheap, so students will buy it if told to do so.' Ijonathan Parker, Keele University 'I find this book excellent for current information about the US. It is particularly useful for the society course, in which we deal with present US society and culture and current issues.' IFelicity Hand, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Spain 'I particularly like the historical outlines, focus on key institutions, focus on the historically explained diversity of the American population and integration of current issues. The book achieves a high degree of comprehensiveness.' IBrigitte Georgi-Findlay, Technische Universitaet Dresden, Germany
