Overview

America's World Identity: The Politics of Exclusion by Neil Renwick

What is America's national identity? This study offers a new perspective into this question. It argues that this identity is constructed rather than essential and reflects the politics of exclusion. This identificatory exclusion has been globalized through American economic, cultural, political, and military expansion. The study provocatively draws upon poetry, literature, art, architecture, gangsta rap, landscape, and cityscape to illuminate the construction of America's national identity and illustrates how this has been globalized in an increasingly post-modernist condition.
