The concept of region is strongly emphasized within the field of American studies; and since the 1960s the trend toward planning and administration of government and business programs on a regional basis has given further impetus to the topic. This work provides a framework for the interdisciplinary study of regionalism in the United States. Each chapter offers an overview of the seminal thinkers, trends, and major schools of thought from the standpoint of 16 subject disciplines. The greater part of each chapter consists of clearly written annotations (over 1600) to books and journal articles selected by the compilers as the most important publications on regionalism. While this work is highly recommended as an authoritative resource guide, the alphabetical grouping of citations under broad disciplines results in some loss of continuity, and lack of subject or key word indexes requires considerable browsing to locate works on specific topics.
