Overview

What is Americanism? The contributors to this volume recognize Americanism in all its complexity-as an ideology, an articulation of the nation's rightful place in the world, a set of traditions, a political language, and a cultural style imbued with political meaning. In response to the pervasive vision of Americanism as a battle cry or a smug assumption, this collection of essays stirs up new questions and debates that challenge us to rethink the model currently being exported, too often by force, to the rest of the world.

Approaching a controversial ideology as both scholars and citizens, many of the essayists call for a revival of the ideals of Americanism in a new progressive politics that can bring together an increasingly polarized and fragmented citizenry. The contributors are Mia Bay, Jun Furuya, Gary Gerstle, Jonathan M. Hansen, Michael Kazin, Rob Kroes, Melani McAlister, Joseph A. McCartin, Alan McPherson, Louis Menand, Mae M. Ngai, Robert Shalhope, Stephen J. Whitfield, and Alan Wolfe. The editors are Michael Kazin and Joseph A. McCartin.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A gem of a collection!

George J. Sanchez, University of Southern California, author of Becoming Mexican American: Ethnicity, Culture and Identity in Chicano Los Angeles, 1900-1945

This admirable collection . . . enriches a necessary debate by complicating the conventional notion that Americanism belongs to the benighted.

Todd Gitlin, author of The Intellectuals and the Flag

This collection of superb essays . . . are provocative in the best sense of the word.

Joyce Appleby, University of California, Los Angeles, author of Inheriting the Revolution: The First Generation of Americans

These essays sharpen and enliven the important debate about the character of American nationalism and its historic foundations.

David Hollinger, University of California, Berkeley, author of Postethnic America: Beyond Multiculturalism
