  • Out of Oakland: Black Panther Party Internationalism during the Cold War
           by Sean L. Mallory (review)
    • Abstract: The current trend in Black Power Studies and Black Panther Party scholarship is transnational in scope. Sean L. Malloy's Out of Oakland fits neatly with the current trend as it examines the Panther's internationalism during the Cold War. Malloy argues that the evolving ideological internationalism of the Black Panther Party is intersectional, nuanced, and fragmented as it encompasses the international revolutionary proletariat struggle, Third World anticolonialism, and Cold War politics. Overall, the book is a critique of the Panther's alliances and connections abroad, while simultaneously outlining the Party's commitment to transnational revolutionary activism and coalitions that threatened the United States' ...

  • Barnstorming the Prairies by Jason Weems (review)
    • Abstract: In this thought-provoking and engaging book, Jason Weems analyzes how the aerial view shaped American views of the Midwest and the relationship between Midwesterners and the land during the tumultuous decades of the 1920s and 1930s. Drawing heavily on Joseph Corn's foundational cultural study in the history of aviation, The Winged Gospel, Weems deftly interweaves political history, artistic critique, geography, and modernity studies to argue that "the new sight lines actualized by aviation composed a new episteme of vision that enabled Americans to reconceptualize their region amid the shifting culture and technology of the twentieth century" (x). While this new way of viewing offered by the airplane—a shift in ... Read More

  • The Value of Homelessness: Managing Surplus Life in the United States by
           Craig Willse (review)
    • Abstract: In The Value of Homelessness, Craig Willse brings together interviews with people who work in homeless services organizations in urban centers alongside careful historical tracing and his own experiences in homelessness activism. Through this study, he critically implores researchers in the social sciences to ask different questions about homelessness. Rather than using individuals as endemic of the problem of the unsheltered, he challenges us throughout this book to denaturalize the construction of the housing system and the racial capitalism that undergirds our current neoliberal milieu. He moves through a historicization of homelessness from 1930s New Deal programs to the current moment and argues that there are ... Read More

  • Unsustainable Empire: Alternative Histories of Hawai'i Statehood by Dean
           Itsuji Saranillio (review)
    • Abstract: When thinking of Hawai'i, most people imagine beautiful beaches, palm trees, perfect waves—in short, the island state is primarily associated with a paradisiac vacation destination. Yet, when having a closer look, it becomes clear that paradise is lost—at least to its indigenous inhabitants. Mainly whitewashed by the Hawaiian tourism industry, the history of the island state is indeed very dark and tragic. Once a thriving independent kingdom, Hawai'i was significantly transformed when first American and later British missionaries arrived on the islands and not only sought to convert the supposedly heathen Kanaka 'Ōiwi (Native Hawaiian) to Christianity, but further started to ban ancient cultural practices such as ...

  • Racial Ecologies ed. by Leilani Nishime and Kim D. Hester-Williams
           (review)
    • Abstract: This interdisciplinary essay collection, which developed from a conference staged by the co-editors a few years ago, will interest scholars working at the intersection of race and environmental justice. The collected essays reveal varying quality, with some in need of a more emphatic editorial intervention than provided, but a number of exciting contributions highlight the strengths of this anthology.Editors Nishime and Hester-Williams want to "show us how communities of color respond to disasters using their own knowledge systems," and to teach us how "marginalized communities contest their compromised environments while envisaging the formation of. . .just environmental relations" (251) and several of the book's ...

  • Brown Beauty: Color, Sex and Race from the Harlem Renaissance to World War
           II by Laila Haidarali (review)
    • Abstract: In an age in which cosmetic lines such as Fenty and Lancôme are seeking out an expansion of shades catering to black women, modern society seems to be making strides towards the embrace of brown skin. Brown-ness in all its glory has recently crept its way into mainstream America as a viable aspect of the national beauty terrain. This growing acceptance of the broad spectrum of beauty within the black community, specifically of black women, has been a fraught journey throughout American history. From the creation of American slavery to today, black women's appearance has been derided and legislated against; lampooned and constructed as the hideous antipole to white feminine beauty. Historically, all things black ... Read More

  • The Genius of Place: The Geographic Imagination in the Early Republic by
           Christopher C. Apap (review)
    • Abstract: The first chapter of Christopher Apap's The Genius of Place: The Geographic Imagination in the Early Republic usefully identifies four discourses that showcase a fundamental shift in Jacksonian America's understanding of space and its reorientation after the War of 1812 from the global to the local: geographical textbooks and classroom instruction; the picturesque as an aesthetic mode; the travel industry and the rise of travel writing; and reconsiderations of the colonial past (24-25). Rooted in these perspectival shifts, Apap performs a series of illuminating close readings of the "sectional" imaginary in novels, sermons, and political speeches beginning in 1816 and concluding with the publication of Ralph Waldo ...

    • Abstract: Playing off the title of Jacob Riis's How the Other Half Lives (1890), Sara Blair analyzes the visual history of New York City's Lower East Side, beginning in the early 1800s and ending in the 21st century. Utilizing paintings, newspapers, magazines, films, literature, and principally photographs, Blair's effort is an engaging work that illuminates cultural, social, and political transformations transpiring within a historic location. In Blair's own words, the book "offers a site-specific account of visual experience, practice, and experimentation, and considers how these inform literary and everyday narratives of America, its citizens, and its modernity" (1). While the title may lead us to anticipate Jacob Riis ... Read More

  • City of Islands: Caribbean Intellectuals in New York by Tammy L. Brown
           (review)
    • Abstract: In New York City, a literal city of islands, people from the Caribbean islands comprise over one third of its foreign-born population. Historian Tammy L. Brown traces the impact of English-speaking Caribbean-born immigrants from Trinidad, Barbados and Jamaica in the early twentieth century while exposing the tensions between non-US blacks and African Americans.

  • Studying Black Men Seriously: A Reading of Tommy Curry's The Man-Not
    • Abstract: Tommy Curry's The Man-Not is required reading for all who work at the intersection of race and gender, especially in the current political milieu in which dead Black male bodies are frequently on display in America. As such, the book is a timely contribution.I begin with a summary of the book and the arguments made in the chapters. I then focus on what I take to be the two main contributions made by the book: the expansion of intersectionality to include Black men's experiences and the critique of certain presuppositions that wrongly force Black men into hegemonic structures of masculinity. I then address two concerns I have about the book and offer responses to those concerns. The first deals with the book's ... Read More

  • The Health of the Field: American World War I Literary Studies at the
           Centenary
    • Abstract: Coming towards the end of the World War I centenary, these works arrive at a point when American World War I literary studies may be said to have come of age. Given the major role the war played in the lives and fiction of America's most significant 20th-century authors, a surprisingly sparse and intermittent series of monographs followed Stanley Cooperman's classic synthesis of the lost generation paradigm in World War I and the American Novel (1967). Since the millennium, however, interest gradually has grown in the form of monographs by Patrick Quinn (2001), Jennifer Haytock (2003), Keith Gandal (2008), Mark Whalan (2008), Karsten Piep (2009), Pearl James (2013), Hazel Hutchison (2015), and Kimberly Licursi ...

  • Iconography, Race, and Lore in the Atlantic World
    • Abstract: On the afternoon of July 4, 2018, the images of a black woman sitting calmly (then lying and crouching) at the feet of the Statue of Liberty flooded social media timelines and broadcast news programs. A short time earlier, the woman at the center of the spectacle, activist Therese Patricia Okoumou, had parted ways with a group of direct-action demonstrators from Rise and Resist to scale the base of the statue. Collectively, the group of eight had decided to take a stance on Independence Day against President Donald Trump's recent "zero tolerance" immigration policies and the separation and detention of Mexican and Central American children. Of her own volition, Okoumou—who had immigrated from the Republic of ... Read More

  • The United States of Hippies
    • Abstract: Hey Jack, now for the tricky part,when you were the brightest star who were the shadows'Every picture has its shadowsAnd it has some source of light The hippies were seemingly everywhere in the 1960s and 1970s, but in actuality their sense of presence in American society was greater than their number. The term "hippie" can be honorable, pejorative, or flippant, all depending on context and speaker. Everyone knows what is meant when "hippie" is uttered, but the truth is no one precisely knows. According to W. J. Rorabaugh, in his very readable American Hippies, the hippie counterculture movement not only made a lasting impression on American culture, but it largely remains a work in progress. What the author hopes ... Read More

  • Playing with Noah in Wanamaker's Temple: (Re)Thinking U.S. Christianity in
           American Studies
    • Abstract: Religion has been, and remains, a driving force in American history. Yet, all too often scholars of American society and culture view religion and religiosity as secondary to prime movers like race, class, and gender. American Studies rarely engages with an in-depth analysis of religious practitioners or religious cultural creation, falling into the trap of relegating religious motivation to the realm of superstition. This is especially true in the current political moment where conservative Christian support of Republican politicians is seen as either the height of hypocrisy or a testament to political manipulation. Nevertheless, religious practitioners, far from opiate-takers with dulled senses, are active and ... Read More

  • Letter from the editors
    • Abstract: Dear AMSJ Readers,A million years ago, way back in November 2016, the AMSJ Editorial Board members sat around a conference table at the surreal ASA meeting in Denver, Colorado, immediately following the presidential election."Select a timely theme for the photo shoot of the Summer Reading Issue," said our Agenda, as it does every year.

  • Freedom and Extermination: Violence, Culture, and Politics in the Era of
           Haitian and U.S. Emancipation
    • Abstract: In "Harlem," Langston Hughes famously asks whether "a dream deferred" festers or sags, but also questions, "Or does it explode'" Speculating on the poem's famous conclusion in the wake of the slave rebellions of 1791 in the French colony of Saint Domingue, and considering the serial events that led to the creation of Haiti in 1804 and later the U.S. Civil War, might offer us another kind of question: what happens to the dream after it explodes' In different ways, the books reviewed here provide comprehensive valences on the catastrophic violence that defined the emancipation of Saint Domingue, but also on the hopes and fears stirred by what became the Haitian Revolution for a network of U.S. and Haitian ...
