Approaches to American Cultural Studies provides an accessible yet comprehensive overview of the diverse range of subjects encompassed within American Studies, familiarising students with the history and shape of American Studies as an academic subject as well as its key theories, methods, and concepts.

Written and edited by an international team of authors based primarily in Europe, the book is divided into four thematically-organised sections. The first part delineates the evolution of American Studies over the course of the twentieth century, the second elaborates on how American Studies as a field is positioned within the wider humanities, and the third inspects and deconstructs popular tropes such as myths of the West, the self-made man, Manifest Destiny, and representations of the President of the United States. The fourth part introduces theories of society such as structuralism and deconstruction, queer and transgender theories, border and hemispheric studies, and critical race theory that are particularly influential within American Studies.

This book is supplemented by a companion website offering further material for study (www.routledge.com/cw/dallmann). Specifically designed for use on courses across Europe, it is a clear and engaging introductory text for students of American culture.

Review:

"This immensely readable compendium of essays provides a nuanced and rich introduction to American Studies. Written by European and US scholars with a broad range of literary and cultural expertise and first-hand experience in undergraduate and graduate-level teaching, Approaches to American Cultural Studies does an excellent job of showcasing the diverse themes, methodologies, and theoretical approaches relevant for an understanding of how US culture works, especially from a transnational perspective. It will be a helpful tool for students of American studies at all levels, both within and outside the United States."

Günter Leypoldt, University of Heidelberg, Germany

"The chapters in Approaches to American Cultural Studies range from the general history of American Studies and American Cultural Studies, focused readings through concepts such as religion, the West, and family, to explorations of various cultural expressions via paradigms of structuralism/deconstruction, feminist criticism, psychoanalysis, age studies, to mention some. The book is consequently a very welcome newcomer on the shelves of the discipline, and will contribute significantly to the learning and teaching of American Studies, especially in non-American classrooms."

Lene M. Johannessen, University of Bergen, Norway
