About the Author:

Alan Trachtenberg, Neil Gray, Jr., Professor of English and American Studies at Yale University, is the author of Reading American Photographs.

Review:

"The Incorporation of America is one of these historical essays that not only illuminate their particular subject matter . . in this case, American culture and society in the last half of the nineteenth century. . . but deepen our understanding of how we might think about the general question of 'culture' itself." --Warren I. Susman, Rutgers University

"This book realizes an ideal often mentioned as the goal of American Studies but seldom achieved: it is a truly 'interdisciplinary' account of American culture at a turning point in our history. Mr. Trachtenberg is not merely a scholar, he is a writer. Reading is a pleasure, not a duty."--Henry Nash Smith, University of California at Berkeley

"This graceful venture in cultural history provides a fresh and stimulating interpretation of American society during the last decades of the nineteenth century."--John M. Blum, Yale University
