About this title

Synopsis:

Linguistic Studies, Language Studies, Ethnic Studies

Review:

"This collection succeeds authoritatively in clearing the semantic ground on which one of the most tortured and divisive of American debates still rages." -- Kate Fullbrook, Journal of American Studies



"A major interpretation of modern American nationalism that deserves a wide readership... Careful surveys of the contested histories of such critical terms in the American conversation about diversity as 'melting pot' (where his essays have already been widely cited in the field), 'pluralism,' 'assimilation,' 'minority,' 'identity,' and culture.'." -- Terrence J. McDonald, Reviews in American History
