Review:

'American Culture Transformed offers an interesting sampling of the cultural landscape in America after 9/11. The authors provide compelling snapshots of iconic moments and figures from the military, economics, the arts, and politics. The book will stir memories and make us uncomfortable again.'

- Mary Poovey, New York University, USA

'With its clear methodology and its sweeping approach, Dialing 9/11 is an accessible and overall convincing approach to that recent decade.' -Transatlantica

'Published just months after the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Priscilla L. Walton and Bruce Tucker's American Culture Transformed, by pertaining to both media and gender studies, strives to contribute a complementary and original point of view to the debates about the post-9/11 years...it is highly documented, accessible, and is pleasant to read for scholars or non-scholars interested in various aspects of American contemporary culture.' - Vincent Souladié, Media and Diversity, 2014
