"From globalization to gender studies to the selling of Tiger Woods as multicultural icon, these provocative and reader-friendly essays provide a new overview of the landscape of cultural studies today as well as--in a unique feature of the book--a blueprint for developing courses out of the issues discussed." —Gerald Graff, Dean of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Illinois at Chicago

"Post-Nationalist American Studies is a strikingly useful book. It offers a seeming contradition-'American' yet 'Post-Nationalist'-as a remarkably generative theoretical standpoint for a series of sharp and challenging essays. All of these provide vivid readings of an unusually wide range of texts and the contributors give us real syllabi for real classes in which theory, close reading, and historical specificity have been put into the kind of classroom practice which is helping reshape not just an academic field of study but the understanding of what 'American' might mean."—Paul Lauter, Smith Professor of Literature, Trinity College
