About this title


"Inexorable Yankeehood" analyzes the reciprocating collision between Henry James and American journalism during his 1904-1905 tour. Drawing on articles in the contemporary press and supplemented by a neglected visual archive, it charts James' progress as he gathers the impressions upon which he will base his 'theory of America'. If James arrives as a 'restored absentee' seeking a renewed relationship with his homeland, the press greets his return with reverence for his status combined with disdain for his prose.
