Grasping Things: Folk Material Cultural and Mass Society in America

by Simon J. Bronner
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
From the acts of entering a suburban house to making headstones to consuming turtle soup, Bronner wants the attentive reader to grasp the dynamics of the usually unexamined aspects of our material world. ``The title of this book speaks to the theme of objects having physical and intellectual consequences.'' Folklore and American studies provide the intellectual base for the author's incisive analysis. The illustrations are exceptionally appropriate and provocative. The clarity of the style and arguments likewise should increase the book's appeal. A social science book that makes good reading. David S. Azzolina, Univ. of Pennsylvania Lib., Philadelphia
