  • Transforming Captivity Narratives in Kevin Willmott’s The Only Good
           Indian (2009)
    • Abstract: The Indian captivity narrative genre, or “accounts of non-Indians held by Indians,” has long been described as establishing both a triumphalist narrative of national progress and a template for American identity, in contrast with American Indian identity.1 As often noted, the Indian captivity narrative is marked by its perpetual metamorphosis, as well as its status “as the archetype of American culture, or its foundation text.”2 Richard Slotkin, in his trilogy on the myth of the American frontier, traces the critical function of the captivity narrative, alongside the story of the Indian fighter, in the development of the colonial project and then national ideology beginning in the seventeenth century. The two ... Read More

  • Columbia and Her Sisters: Personifying the Civil War
    • Abstract: A month after the bombardment of Fort Sumter and the beginning of hostilities between the Union and the newly formed Confederacy, Columbia, the female personification of the United States, slumbers peacefully amid the tumult. S.J.A.’s poem “Not Dead” (1861), printed in Harper’s Weekly, the leading periodical of the day, begins with an epigraph taken from a “motto on a New York banner”—a flag most likely designed and produced by local women for a regiment: “The Union is not dead but sleeping.”1 Through the “dark night of wickedness” caused by the rebellion, the people of the North must guard both “our Union and our liberty.” S.J.A. calls on “each soldier’s arm to grasp the sabre,” since only the return of “each star ...

  • Controlling Ourselves: Emotional Intelligence, the Marshmallow Test, and
           the Inheritance of Race
    • Abstract: In 1995, when psychologist Daniel Goleman published Emotional Intelligence, a treatise that topped best-seller lists for more than a year and went on to sell 5 million copies worldwide, he introduced a popular audience to a concept that had been circulating in psychology circles for some time. The idea that people possessed an “emotional intelligence” (EI) was not original with Goleman. There had already been research by several psychologists, including Howard Gardner, Peter Salovey, and Jack Mayer, that had mapped out a position that intelligences were multiple and that noncognitive skills (like self-awareness, motivation, and empathy) played as large a role, if not a far greater role, in how a person’s life ...

  • The Holy Land of Matrimony: The Complex Legacy of the Broomstick Wedding
           in American History
    • Abstract: The 1976 publication of Alex Haley’s Roots: The Saga of an American Family forced Americans to reckon with the experiences of black people in the United States. Haley’s novel was a historical fiction depicting his ancestral history, beginning with his eighteenth-century West African forebears and concluding in the late twentieth century. Roots vividly illuminated the African experience in America and unveiled a distinct narrative that drifted away from the traditional Anglo-American histories. Haley personified this experience through his initial protagonist, Kunta Kinte, a character who both physically and psychologically attempts to resist the system that forcibly took him from his homeland and placed him in ...

  • Ad Hoc American Studies: Michigan and the Hidden History of a Movement
    • Abstract: In 1977, K. Anne Teitsworth, a doctoral student in American Culture at the University of Michigan, submitted her dissertation on the literary scholar Howard Mumford Jones and his critical writings.1 In the manuscript, Teitsworth situated Jones’s understanding of culture and literature within a larger genealogy of American humanist thought. By focusing on Jones’s published writings, however, Teitsworth ignored his work as an educator and administrator. She never mentioned that, while at Michigan in the 1930s, Jones had played a central role in starting the very program in which Teitsworth was enrolled. In an added twist, the preface reveals that her topic was suggested by Joe Lee Davis, the director of American ... Read More

  • Violence, Culture and Resistance: New Directions in the Study of Settler
           Colonialism and Indigeneity
    • Abstract: In her influential book Transit of Empire, Indigenous scholar Jodi Byrd has provocatively asserted, “The story of the new world is horror, the story of America is a crime.”1 The line, to varying degrees, reflects an assumption and theme that courses through these works, two of which are edited collections and one that reenvisions North American history, putting Indigenous people at the center of the story. But if the colonization of the continent was indeed a crime, as many of the writers featured here might broadly agree, there is much disagreement over the nature of the offense. For certain, the history of settler colonialism has wrought devastation and violence, but it has also engendered resistance at ... Read More

  • Red Ink: Native Americans Picking up the Pen in the Colonial Period by
           Drew Lopenzina (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Lopenzina’s book—Red Ink—invokes an era of under-appreciated literary production by Native Americans, while punning on two crucial features of that production: its enduring vulnerability to revision and erasure by hegemonic cultural “editors,” and the blood-spattered historical context in which it took place. This is an impressively thorough and often compelling study; it highlights the processes of assimilation and the strategies of resistance visible in a range of colonial texts composed by indigenous authors while extending the bounds and enriching our understanding of Native American literary history.Lopenzina’s introduction anatomizes Euro-American cultural presumptions about Native literary ...

  • American Allegory: Lindy Hop and the Racial Imagination by Black Hawk
           Hancock (review)
    • Abstract: As a graduate student in Chicago, the sociologist Black Hawk Hancock thought he was simply pursuing a hobby but ended up finding a long-term research project. In American Allegory: Lindy Hop and the Racial Imagination, Hancock interrogates issues of appropriation, whiteness, and racialized nostalgia within the predominantly white subculture of American swing dance revivalists. Fusing his training as a sociologist and professional dancer, Hancock approaches this task through a paradigm he terms “carnal sociology” which involves not only reflexivity and corporeal participation but also an investment in the rigor of embodied engagement with a particular movement practice. As such, his approach echoes the ... Read More

  • Making Cinelandia: American Film and Mexican Film Culture before the
           Golden Age by Laura Isabel Serna (review)
    • Abstract: In the 1920s American films dominated Mexico’s cinemas creating the fear in its cultural elites that Mexico would become a cultural dependent of the United States. In Making Cinelandia American Film and Mexican Film Culture Before the Golden Age Laura Isabel Serna compellingly argues that rather than acting as a “form of cultural imperialism” (1), American films and film culture engaged city dwelling Mexican moviegoers (on both sides of the border) in ways that ultimately molded their identities as modern Mexicans beyond the cinema. Borrowing the title of a popular Mexican film magazine from the time, Cinelandia, Serna develops the idea of Cinelandia as a “distinctly Mexican cultural space” of “American film ... Read More

  • Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory: A Journey into the Evangelical Subculture
           in America, 25th Anniversary Edition by Randall Balmer (review)
    • Abstract: We can all be glad for the twenty-fifth Anniversary Edition of Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory, by Randall Balmer. In capturing, with respect and compassion, the lives and sentiments of evangelical Americans Balmer gifted scholars and students with a wide-ranging analysis of a social group that continues to strongly influence American society. The original analysis offers what is still one of the best discussions of such issues as the development of churches qua organizations, the historical and contemporaneous force of millennialism, how “oddities” such as faith healing constitute the evangelical experience, and the impact of social location on our research (via Balmer’s frank disclosures of self throughout his ...

  • The East is Black: Cold War China in the Black Radical Imagination by
           Robeson Taj Frazier (review)
    • Abstract: In a fascinating new book entitled The East is Black, Robeson Taj Frazier explores the significance of China for a cadre of black activists and thinkers during the Cold War. Drawing on an impressive array of primary sources from the United States and China—including archival material, newspapers, oral histories, films, and travel narratives—Frazier describes how W.E.B. Du Bois, Shirley Graham Du Bois, Robert F. Williams, Mabel Williams, Vicki Garvin, and William Worthy “deployed and grappled with media, travel, and travel narrative in their interactions in China and in their formulations of transnational politics” (4). Using the terms “radical imagining” to describe the ideas, interactions, political practices, and ... Read More

  • The Hoarders: Material Deviance in Modern American Culture by Scott
           Herring (review)
    • Abstract: Scott Herring’s The Hoarders: Material Deviance in Modern American Culture is a provocative book that interrogates contemporary psychology’s treatment of hoarding as a mental illness. Herring demonstrates that “the hoarder” is not a transhistorical reality resulting from defective DNA or deteriorating neurons, but a cultural construct embodying and enforcing powerful social norms about appropriate attitudes and behaviors toward objects. People who flagrantly violate these norms face medico-juridical consequences, and the spectacles made of hoarders “function as visible reminders of how we should not engage with things” (8). Without discounting that many people who hoard suffer and cause harm, Herring questions ... Read More

  • The Political Force of Musical Beauty by Barry Shank (review)
    • Abstract: Barry Shank’s The Political Force of Musical Beauty is an ambitious and wide-ranging exploration of the political and beautiful in popular and avant garde musics. Shank is obviously a fan of the music he investigates, and his love for the eclectic styles he examines is clearly exhibited through his close analysis of the many works and performances he brings together in the text.Shank dismantles the traditional manner of exploring the political in music by interrogating the focus on identity in music studies, especially popular music studies. Relying upon French philosophers Jean-Luc Nancy and Jacques Ranciere and Belgian political theorist Chantal Mouffe, Shank challenges the conventional approach to examining the ... Read More

  • A Shadow Over Palestine: The Imperial Life of Race in America by Keith P.

    • Abstract: Keith Feldman argues persuasively that U.S. imperialism and domestic racism in the post–World War II era are streams fed continuously by the “entangled history of the United States, Israel, and Palestine” (5). Feldman shows that American exceptionalism, racism directed against African-Americans, and Islamophobia have each been nurtured by U.S. state support for Israel and Zionism. Part two of Feldman’s narrative is the dialectical surge of Arab, Palestinian, and African American voices that have challenged this support. This “contrapuntal” movement is the thrust of Feldman’s book, which is a significant contribution to scholarship on U.S. imperialism.Chapter 1, “Specters of Genocide,” explains how the 1975 United ...

  • Beyond Civil Rights: The Moynihan Report and Its Legacy by Daniel Geary
           (review)
    • Abstract: Daniel Geary has written an important history on both the inception of the Moynihan Report and its reception by academics and pundits. Rarely, if at all, does a government study receive much attention from individuals outside of the federal bureaucracy. Yet the Moynihan Report—even decades after Daniel Patrick Moynihan, then an assistant secretary of labor, wrote the report in March 1965 as an internal document—engaged the public in a way government studies rarely do. While the use of phrases such as “tangle of pathology” no doubt partially explains the public interest in the Moynihan Report, Geary also points to the elasticity of the document’s argument itself. The underlying meaning of the Moynihan Report ... Read More

  • Black Silent Majority: The Rockefeller Drug Laws and the Politics of
           Punishment by Michael Javen Fortner (review)
    • Abstract: Black Silent Majority proffers an alternative explanation for the emergence of mass incarceration in the post–Civil Rights era. Refuting the consensus of the origins of mass incarceration, most popularly averred by legal scholar Michelle Alexander, that white backlash against the black freedom movement spurred mass incarceration, Fortner locates the agency of black New Yorkers in the passage of the 1973 Rockefeller Drug Laws, asserting, basically, that “black-on-black crime,” rather than a reformulated white supremacy, explains the rise of the carceral state.Between the 1940s and the early 1970s, the black silent majority, at first a quiescent, unorganized group of working-and-middle class black New Yorkers ...

  • Cinema Rights: Regulation, Repression, and Race in the Classical Hollywood
           Era by Ellen C. Scott (review)
    • Abstract: While much has been written about classic Hollywood in both popular and academic film history, surprisingly little has addressed the issue of race. The absence or abjection of cinematic representation of people of color is one explanation for this silence. Ellen C. Scott has attempted to look deeper into the politics of representation to find out the ways that race factored into production decisions within the Hollywood studio system.Scott does an excellent job of situating her work alongside other film historians like Thomas Cripps and Ed Guerrero, who have also grappled with similar problems regarding representations of race in Hollywood. Borrowing from queer film theory, Scott offered the idea of ... Read More

  • Don’t Act, Just Dance: The Metapolitics of Cold War Culture by Catherine
           Gunther Kodat (review)
    • Abstract: Coinciding with the 1990 Goodwill Games, Seattle and Tacoma, Washington hosted the Goodwill Arts Festival. This international presentation was planned as the Soviet Union’s policies of glasnost and perestroika melted Cold War hostilities between the United States and the Soviet Union. The festival included the Seattle Opera’s production of Sergei Prokofiev’s War and Peace (1942), the Seattle Symphony and Seattle Chorale’s staging of Prokofiev’s score for Sergei Eisenstein’s film Alexander Nevsky (1938), and the Bolshoi Ballet’s performances of Yuri Grigorovich’s choreography for Prokofiev’s Ivan the Terrible (1975). This was opening stop of the Bolshoi’s American tour, announcing the Gosconcert’s interest in ... Read More

  • Folksongs of Another America: Field Recordings From the Upper Midwest,
           1937–1946 by James P. Leary (review)
    • Abstract: The global influence of American roots music never ceases to amaze, from Scandinavian neo-hillbilly tunes to country gospel by Indigenous Australians. In our zeal to enjoy this transcultural cross-fertilization, however, we often forget the history of farsighted documentarians who first struggled to bring American traditional music to wider public attention amidst intense cultural politics of the day—notably resistance to a pluralistic ideal—that sought to erase the ethnic difference evinced in such traditions. As a consequence, much of the musical wealth that early fieldworkers discovered remained buried in federal archives.Jim Leary, one of the most respected scholars of folk music, has completed a project that ...

  • Oklahomo: Lessons in Unqueering America by Carol Mason (review)
    • Abstract: Sally Kern is a six-term member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, and she does not like homosexuals. In fact, in 2008, Kern stated publicly that she considers homosexuality to be “the biggest threat our nation has, even more so than terrorism or Islam.” According to the Sooner lawmaker this is because “studies show that no society that has totally embraced homosexuality has lasted more than, you know, a few decades. So it’s the death knell of this country” (3).Clearly, Sally Kern does not know much about history, American or otherwise. Given her stance on evolution (she is against it), Kern doesn’t appear to know very much about biology either. That doesn’t mean her undoubtedly very sincerely held beliefs ... Read More

  • On Race and Medicine: Insider Perspectives ed. by Richard Garcia (review)
    • Abstract: The fields of anthropology and sociology, in addition to health sciences, have problematized the topic of race and medicine extensively. The dubious history of medical practice towards non-white bodies has left deep impacts on the manner in which biomedicine still speaks, treats, and cares for individuals who are not white. Medicine has its own white privilege problem in the way it often sets whiteness (and maleness) as the default body to research, treat, and care for. On Race and Medicine reflects on these challenges by providing an insight into the experiences of practitioners and researchers at the intersection of race and healthcare.The book falls within the purview of current research and theory exploring the ...

  • Pastrami on Rye: An Overstuffed History of the Jewish Deli by Ted Merwin
           (review)
    • Abstract: While others have written about Jewish foodways, including Hasia R. Diner, Joan Nathan, and Jenna Weissman Joselit, Ted Merwin’s Pastrami on Rye represents the first full-length treatment of the Jewish delicatessen. He deftly describes the trajectory of this American institution, from “delicatessen store” to delis, and as time went on, its decline. Geographically, we travel from New York’s East Side to Broadway then nationwide. Jewish immigrants, like others, refashioned their culinary identity in a land of abundance. He also chronicles how other foods and cuisines entered the Jewish diet. Fascinating, humorous, and written with love for his topic, this is well worth reading.Of course, delis never had an all-Jewish ... Read More

  • Racial Ambiguity in Asian American Culture by Jennifer Ann Ho (review)
    • Abstract: Jennifer Ho’s Racial Ambiguity in Asian American Culture raises timely questions about the category of Asian American at a time when reexaminations of identity categories are being actively carried out in what the feminist theorist Robyn Wiegman calls fields invested in identity knowledges. As Ho explains in her introduction, questioning the definition of Asian American in and of itself is not a new project. The category of Asian American, while rooted in grassroots social movements of the 1960s and meant to counter the demeaning signification of “Oriental,” has been scrutinized, if not solely then most forcefully, by poststructural critiques such as Kandice Chuh’s Imagine Otherwise. Yet Ho’s project differs from ... Read More

  • Seeing Green: The Use and Abuse of American Environmental Images by Finis
           Dunaway (review)
    • Abstract: Historians of environmentalism have often overlooked visual culture, focusing instead on policy and grassroots politics. But, as Finis Dunaway shows in this excellent book, scholars interested in environmentalism ignore the role of green imagery (photography, documentaries, Hollywood movies, cartoons, television news broadcasts, and other media representations) at considerable peril. Environmental visual culture, he argues, did not simply reflect the environmental crises of the last fifty years, but also subtly and powerfully shaped and delimited environmental politics.Dunaway starts by reminding us of the importance of images in early- and mid-twentieth-century American conservation (the subject of his superb ...

Presenting music from the genres of folk, country, spirituals, and rap Sounding the Color Line provides alternative interpretations of music as racial text. Focusing on the segregation of musical genres particularly in the South, Nunn examines the unconscious categorization of popular songs and styles such as rap or rock into classifications of black or white in the public imagination.Arguing that the nineteenth century legacy of blackface minstrelsy played a significant role in the development of race music, from the late nineteenth century into ...

  • South Side Girls: Growing Up in The Great Migration by Marcia Chatelain

    • Abstract: Historians studying the African American experience have written extensively on the complexities of the First and Second Great Migrations. Studies by Darlene Clark Hine, Joe Trotter, James Grossman, Luther Adams, and others demonstrate the various socioeconomic and political and personal factors drawing millions of black southerners to urban northern, southern, and midwestern communities. Much of what scholars already know about African Americans’ migratory journeys and adjustment to urban terrains is indeed well documented and primarily centered on the experiences of adults. Filling a much-needed historical gap within the subfields of African American, urban, and women and childhood studies, scholar Marcia ... Read More

  • Tales From the Haunted South: Dark Tourism and Memories of Slavery from
           the Civil War Era by Tiya Miles (review)
    • Abstract: By its nature, dark tourism embraces the ugly parts of history and human relations shunned by tours that focus on elegant architecture and heroic city fathers. As such, haunted history tours have become one of the few venues through which public historians have engaged the history of slavery. In Tales from the Haunted South: Dark Tourism and Memories of Slavery from the Civil War Era, the product of Pennsylvania State University’s Steven and Janice Brose Lectures in the Civil War Era, Tiya Miles questions the use of such methods as didactic tools.With a good eye for poetic detail and a thoughtful, charming voice situated somewhere near Fox Mulder on the spectrum between believer and skeptic, Miles acts as her ...

  • Theatrical Jazz: Performance, Àse, and the Power of the Present Moment by
           Omi Osun Joni L. Jones (review)
    • Abstract: Omi Osun Joni L. Jones details a fascinating interconnection between Yoruba spirit practices and jazz in theatrical art-making. The blend constitutes a new genre as Jones charts generations of a community of artists who craft a unique form of theater that encompasses mind, spirit, body—the everyday—and the hyper-realities of the stage within ancient practices of African aesthetics. The work uses the expansive characteristics of jazz and Yoruba spiritual concepts to practice personal and social transformation as suggested by Paul Carter Harrison and others’ notion of black theater as ritual practice. Theatrical Jazz provides the biography of an artistic movement committed to principles of acceptance, transformation ... Read More

  • We Believe the Children: A Moral Panic in the 1980s by Richard Beck
           (review)
    • Abstract: This is the first book on the 1980s day care center panics to have appeared in a good while, and it is a worthy but frustrating addition to the literature on that mass hysteria. This episode of public panic is virtually unknown to the present generation of students and is probably less well-known to many younger faculty members as well. While no one was hanged or pressed to death as in the Salem witch trials, people were falsely imprisoned, lives and businesses were ruined, communities were put into turmoil, and personal relationships were destroyed. All this on the basis of testimony that was nearly always dubious, often patently unbelievable, and, worst of all, was often the product of adult coercion of children. ... Read More

  • West of Harlem: African American Writers and the Borderlands by Emily
           Lutenski (review)
    • Abstract: In West of Harlem, Emily Lutenski brings heretofore marginalized or erased black modernist experiences to the center. As the book’s subtitle suggests, there is an intimate connection between African American Writers and the Borderlands. Though the nearly exclusive focus on Harlem as the site of black modernist literary production and identity formation provides a useful center point from which to start, the center cannot hold if striving to do justice to the breadth and complexity of black lives. Indeed, any dominant narrative of blackness—in any era—will likewise occlude, suppress, and deny the great diversity of African American experience. In her rejection of “the idea that the West is anomalous in black history ... Read More
