  • Letter from the editors
    • Abstract: Dear AMSJ Readers, Welcome to the annual “Summer Reading Issue” of AMSJ. We hope you enjoy this collection of reviews and review essays of exciting new books in American Studies. We are also pleased to continue our unique tradition of adorning the pages of the “Summer Reading Issue” with playful snapshots of our editorial board members, editors and staff. This year, we invited our board members to break out their selfie sticks and give themselves a gold medal for this year’s theme: the “Summer Reading Issue Summer Olympics Photo Spread.” Our editorial board members are all champions. They shoulder an Olympian load at AMSJ and each has earned a gold medal. No one expresses ... Read More

  • Music Studies, American Studies, and the Popular History of the Normal
    • Abstract: The maturation of a scholarly field is marked not only by the development of its own infrastructure—scholarly associations, tenure-track appointments, book series with major presses, journals, and the like—but perhaps even more so by the revision of its earlier findings, a rethinking of outdated assumptions and judgments. Once a field has demonstrated its capacity to reconsider its inherited truths, it has then reached the stage where it can also make significant contributions to other fields. These three books each revisit long-held shibboleths in popular music studies, identifying new historical continuities as they overturn some of the founding positions in the field. In so doing, these books also ... Read More

  • Animal Activism and Environmentalism in an Age of Extinction
    • Abstract: On June 19, 2015, a team of biologists, including Paul R. Ehrlich, author of the 1960s bestseller The Population Bomb (1968), published a brief study in Science Advances on the future of life on the planet. Their forecast was dire: the world is in the midst of a sixth mass extinction, a cataclysmic biotic collapse on par with the end of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Since 1900, more than 450 vertebrate species have disappeared, an extinction toll that will continue to increase over the next few centuries. “If the currently elevated extinction pace is allowed to continue,” they warn darkly, “humans will soon (in as little as three human lifetimes) be deprived of many biodiversity benefits” (read: the ...

  • New Histories of Representing American Suburbs: Race, Place, and Memory
    • Abstract: We have entered a Golden Age of suburban studies. Much has already been made of the so-called “new suburban history” of the early twenty-first century. Earlier scholars of American suburbia had sketched out a vision of suburbia demographically, geographically, and functionally too narrow.1 Much of the focus was on the migration of the affluent from the city to suburbs, which subsequently excluded economically and socially marginal peoples. This view painted suburbs as predominantly white middle-class enclaves functioning as bedroom communities for residents who depended on cities for jobs, shopping, and leisure.2 New suburban historians challenged these earlier depictions for their omissions: industry; ...

  • Projecting Mark Twain From Bohemia to Xinjiang
    • Abstract: Although he did take up several pen names during his career, Samuel L. Clemens predominantly stuck with his most famous nom de plume, Mark Twain. If asked to imagine Twain, most people would call to mind his bushy hair, mustache, and eyebrows along with his signature white suit, and, perhaps, a cigar. Although his wardrobe was more varied than such a sketch would denote, Twain’s look, in its wild stability, came to represent an immovable figure of the American frontier. For many, Twain’s visage became the look of American letters: individual, a bit unkempt, and reassuringly familiar. But the relatively static vision of Twain’s figure belies a multifarious oeuvre that continues to be reshaped and expanded by ... Read More

  • Spectacular Manhood and Girlhood: Celebrity Studies and Girlhood Studies
           Come of Age
    • Abstract: Celebrity studies as interdisciplinary scholarship has come of age, as the books under review here indicate. Over the last half century, a vast study of celebrity, fame, stars, and entertainment industries has emerged to investigate how “the star intervenes and functions on every level of life, the imaginary level, the practical level, and especially on the level of the dialectic between the imaginary and the practical.”1 Yet scholars of celebrity culture can still find themselves on the defensive, facing charges of “zany doings” and “trendy jargon,” as did the editors of Deconstructing Brad Pitt when they tried to organize a 2005 conference panel on the “cultural logic of Brad Pitt” to explore masculinity ...

    • Abstract: “It is a peculiar sensation, this double consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of the world that looks in on it in an amused contempt and pity.” W.E.B. Du Bois writes in The Souls of Black Folk (1903) that African Americans are born with a sort of second-sight for which to understand their position in the world, but particularly in American society. He understood, mostly by his own experiences as a black man working in the south at the beginning of the twentieth century, and as a trained scholar in history and sociology, that African Americans had the ability to see themselves not only as themselves, but also as outsiders ...

  • The Baseball Stadium Insider: A Comprehensive Dissection of All Thirty
           Ballparks, Legendary Players, and Memorable Moments by Matt Lupica
           (review)
    • Abstract: The sights, sounds, and experiences of professional baseball stadiums have often been celebrated as a right of American sporting passage, as these places serve as architectural representations of the contemporary state of the “national pastime.” Matt Lupica celebrates the character and unique history of each stadium currently hosting Major League Baseball (MLB) teams, recognizing that these “stunning ballparks” are characterized by the confluence of a traditional game within a modern professional context, and engrained with famous and infamous moments and events (413). In The Baseball Stadium Insider, Lupica describes the dimensions, histories, and narratives of the thirty stadiums where professional ... Read More

  • Personal Modernisms: Anarchist Networks and the Later Avant-Gardes by
           James Gifford (review)
    • Abstract: With the prolific scholarly interest in American and British modern literature, it can be surprising to come across a pocket of overlooked and often overshadowed writers. Movements and schools of literary thought are easily classifiable and thus encourage specific compartmentalization within modernist literature. In doing so, however, writers who do not fit snugly into these predetermined categories risk going undetected and under-recognized as to their larger impact on modernist literature and thought. One such group is the Personalists, a descriptive term that James Gifford is clearly trying to popularize in his study of the anarchist networks that spanned the globe in the 1930s and 40s. Paris’s Villa ... Read More

  • Sex Scene: Media and the Sexual Revolution ed. by Eric Schaefer (review)
    • Abstract: Sex Scene, edited by Eric Schaeffer, includes contributions from sixteen authors and specialists with various scholarly sexual backgrounds including the history of hardcore pornography, sexuality and gay matters, as well as media, film, culture, and gender studies. The book is divided into five parts (each has three chapters) of almost equal length. Each essay is supported by nude, erotic or sexy scenes, stills, and posters thus there are more than five dozens black and white figures in the entire book. The book discusses art films, sexploitation films, mainstream movies, erotic films, and gay pornography in fifteen lively essays. Schaeffer’s anthology offers a comprehensive and complex history of the sexual ... Read More

  • The Fabric of Space: Water, Modernity, and the Urban Imagination by
           Matthew Gandy (review)
    • Abstract: This volume explores selected aspects of the water and wastewater infrastructure of six megacities with an emphasis on distinctive characteristics rather than systematic comparison. Modernity, particularly in its technological and social dimensions, serves to unite the essays thematically, with perspectives on nature and the environment as a background theme. Part history, part critique, and sometimes travelogue, the collection takes us through the sewers of Paris, then, by way of the recreational landscapes of Berlin, to the malarial swamps of Lagos. Then en route to the severely challenged lawful and unlawful water conduits of Mumbai before delivering readers to the vanished Los Angeles River ... Read More

  • After War: The Weight of Life at Walter Reed by Zoë H. Wool (review)
    • Abstract: Zoe H. Wool’s book, After War, is an ethnographic study of seriously wounded soldiers and their family members as they leave battlefields in Iraq or Afghanistan and enter another, the struggle for normalcy, for ordinary lives at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in 2007–08. This is an important area of study. Wool is a medical anthropologist at Rice University. Her purpose is to examine, understand, and interpret the lives of a few white soldiers who have lost their mobility, who live with pain and on drugs, who live with PTSD, who have lost the lives that they knew and thought they would have, and who have been made to serve as national icons, to serve in the public arena in support of war. Zoe wrote: ... Read More

  • Early Blues: The First Stars of Blues Guitar by Jas Obrecht (review)
    • Abstract: Since the late 1970s, Jas Obrecht has supplied sharp and insightful commentary on guitarists and popular music to a variety of publications, particularly Guitar Player, where he served as staff editor for two decades. However, his most insightful and prolific writing has been on the blues, and he is one of the most respected writers on the genre. His two previous monographs, Blues Guitar: The Men Who Made the Music (1990) and Rollin’ and Tumblin’: The Postwar Blues Guitarists (2000), focus largely on the giants of the urban blues, such as Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and B.

  • From The Land of Shadows: War, Revolution, and the Making of the Cambodian
           Diaspora by Khatharya Um (review)
    • Abstract: The history of Cambodia is complex as it is entangled with the history of Vietnam and overshadowed by the rule of the Khmer Rouge, a brutal revolutionary group that aimed to radically transform the country. Under the leadership of Pol Pot, the Khmer Rouge took control of schools, hospitals, and communal labor in order to turn Cambodia into an agrarian state based on the Maoist-Communist model. Subsequently, Cambodians were forcefully relocated and pressed into servitude on collective farms in labor camps. Those who could not work for the regime or opposed it were immediately killed, and thousands fled the country and sought refuge in the neighboring countries as well as in the United States, Europe, and ...

  • Katrina: After the Flood by Gary Rivlin (review)
    • Abstract: A decade after Hurricane Katrina, do we really understand the seemingly endless social and political fallout that occurred with “Katrina”? Journalist Gary Rivlin seeks to answer this question in Katrina: After the Flood. The book traces the events surrounding the storm and its aftermath, through to its nine-year anniversary in 2014. Piecing together news coverage, interviews, public documents, and his own observations on the effects of the storm and the rebuilding process, Rivlin argues that, despite the ample media coverage around the storm, the public has been left, paradoxically, with a caliginous understanding of one of the most publicized disasters in American history. This ambiguity of experience has ... Read More

  • Latino Heartland: Of Borders and Belonging in the Midwest by Sujey Vega
           (review)
    • Abstract: In the last twenty-five years, since the aftermath of the publication of Dinoicio Valdes Al Norte: Agricultural Workers in the Great Lakes Region, 1917–1970, various scholarship has documented the Mexican/Latino working class experience in the North American Midwest. Sujey Vega has recently added a new ethnographic history to the Mexican and Latino experience in Greater Lafayette, Indiana. Vega argues that ethnic populations have a rich cultural and political historical memory in central Indiana and that the Anglo-American farmer image is an imaginary representation (4). In analyzing the film Hoosiers (1986), the author adopted the concept of Latino Hoosier to identify this research subject matter. (5) ... Read More

  • Lynched: The Victims of Southern Mob Violence by Amy Kate Bailey and
           Stewart E. Tolnay (review)
    • Abstract: Lynching scholarship has proliferated in the last fifteen years or so. In addition to general studies, one can find works on individual lynchings, on the causes of lynchings, on lynchings in photographs, literature, and more. The one thing we have lacked is a study of the victims themselves. In Lynched: The Victims of Southern Mob Violence, sociologists Amy Kate Bailey and Stewart E. Tolnay begin to fill that void. For this study, Bailey and Tolnay looked at the victims of 2,805 lynchings in the southern states between 1882 and 1930. (Their list was one drawn up by Tolnay and E. M. Beck in 2010 that reconciled previous compilations with names and events described in contemporary newspaper ... Read More

  • Masters of Empire: Great Lakes Indians and the Making of America by
           Michael A. McDonnell (review)
    • Abstract: With this monograph, Michael McDonnell joins a growing list of historians who have taken up Daniel Richter’s challenge to reinterpret American history by “facing east from Indian Country.” While the narrative unfolds along a familiar timeline stretching from the early 1600s to Removal, McDonnell gives a new spin to the story by recounting it from an unusual vantage point: that of the Anishinabe Odawa who lived around the straits of Michilimackinac. As a strategic gateway connecting Lakes Huron and Michigan, the region has long been of scholarly interest but no one, until now, had published a detailed ethno-history of its Odawa residents. Although he draws on familiar sources, McDonnell has nonetheless ... Read More

  • “No One Helped:” Kitty Genovese, New York City, and the Myth of Urban
           Apathy by Marcia M. Gallo (review)
    • Abstract: In “No One Helped” Marcia Gallo uses the Kitty Genovese murder and sexual assault in the Queens borough of New York City on March 13, 1964 to track the larger political discourses that shaped, framed, and reflected the shifting historical meaning of the crime over the last 50 years. In this masterfully researched work, Gallo challenges depictions of Kitty Genovese as the “Ideal Victim” to reveal a vivacious, intelligent, independent young woman with a lesbian partner and strong family ties before dedicating most of her analysis on the powerful mid-career New York Times editor A.M. Rosenthal and the myth of urban apathy he created in his coverage of her murder. Gallo argues that the notoriously homophobic ... Read More

  • Red War on the Family: Sex, Gender and Americanism in the First Red Scare
           by Erica J. Ryan (review)
    • Abstract: In about 2010, when I (successfully) proposed to the University of Illinois Press a book to be entitled Between the Great Red Scares: American Anti-Communism and Political Repression, 1921–1946 (to appear in about 2018–19), I argued that although there was by then a massive literature on the two great post-world war red scares (1919–20 and 1946–1954), the “inbetween” period has been relatively neglected, although anti-communism and political repression, even if diminished, had by no means disappeared. Therefore, I maintained, especially as what was available on these topics was scattered through very specialized books and articles (often on individual strikes and/or localities), that there was a crying ...

  • Religion of a Different Color: Race and the Mormon Struggle for Whiteness
           by W. Paul Reeve (review)
    • Abstract: According to Charles Furley, a medical doctor who visited Utah in 1863, Mormons had a distinctive appearance. Their faces possessed “a general lack of color” and their cheeks were “sallow and cadaverous.” “The eye is dull and lusterless—the mouth almost invariably coarse and vulgar” (18). Other scientific voices commented on Mormon weak frames and even their “polyerotic eyes” which left them prone to moral depravity (28). A new race had begun to form in the American West as the worst dregs of European society immigrated to join the Mormon Church and their participation in polygamy. This discourse was not limited to those opposed to Mormonism. Mormons saw themselves through a similar lens for their ... Read More

  • Strong Inside: Perry Wallace and the Collision of Race and Sports in the
           South by Andrew Maraniss (review)
    • Abstract: In February 2015, Serena Williams surprised the world when she announced that she would return to the Indian Wells; a tournament she had boycotted permanently. In 2001, a predominately white crowd booed and harangued the then-nineteen-year-old the entire match because they believed that her sister, Venus, had pulled out of a match at the last minute to avoid playing Serena in the semifinals. Distraught and traumatized, Serena, then 19-years-old, wept in the locker room for several hours and vowed never to return. For years the Indian Wells officials begged her to return. For thirteen years she declined, but in February of 2015 she had a change of heart after reading Nelson Mandela’s auto-biography, Long Walk ... Read More

  • The Great Melding: War, the Dixiecrat Rebellion, and the Southern Model
           for America’s New Conservatism by Glenn Feldman (review)
    • Abstract: Concern for disparities in income and power tend to be cyclical in American political life, even if such inequity remains constant. In the current era, when discourse about the “top 1 per cent” produces voter backlash and distinctions of race, religion, and national origin have renewed salience, history offers lessons on how our democracy both allows and encourages a politics that is distinctly undemocratic. Voter acquiescence to conservative economic and political oligarchy is a necessary condition for the persistence of such stark inequity in a democracy, and this political fact is by no means new. In his historical analysis of twentieth-century Southern politics, focusing most directly on ... Read More

  • The Rise of the Right to Know: Politics and the Culture of Transparency,
           1945–1975 by Michael Schudson (review)
    • Abstract: Given the ubiquity of invocations of the “Information Age” and the widely-shared assumptions behind it, particularly about the full accessibility of information and the right of the public to obtain it, one would think that more scholarly historical studies on those assumptions would be on record. In The Rise of the Right to Know, Michael Schudson unearths and examines those assumptions. His book traces a series of “openings”—the episodic “emergence of a culture of disclosure” and openness—in American politics, government, law, journalism, and society (17, 24). Schudson effectively argues that this emergence began many years before the onset of our Information Age. Indeed, Schudson’s central ... Read More

  • Clean and White: A History of Environmental Racism in the United States by
           Carl A. Zimring (review)
    • Abstract: The words “environmental racism” typically conjure up the practice of locating toxic dumps and industries in neighborhoods or regions inhabited by minority populations, especially African Americans. In this respect, Zimring’s book seems mistitled, for it does not constitute a history of environmental racism in the typical sense. Instead, Zimring tackles a broader subject—namely, the historical development, in the United States, of an association of white racial identity with cleanliness and blackness with waste or contamination, and how this conflation manifested itself geographically and socially. The book begins with Thomas Jefferson, noting that he and his contemporaries made no explicit ... Read More

  • Moments of Impact: Injury, Racialized Memory, and Reconciliation in
           College Football by Jaime Schultz (review)
    • Abstract: Professor Jaime Schultz has produced a wonderful piece of scholarship that weaves together history, sociology, and sports as seen through the complicated politics of racialized memory. The book focuses on three college football athletes, whose memories haunt us today. These athletes––Jack Trice, Ozzie Simmons, and Johnny Bright––are all significant threads in the tapestry of United States college football and, as Schultz argues, race in college football and beyond. Schultz is an adept historian who weaves a compelling narrative that is easy to read as well as interesting and thought-provoking. Many things were enjoyable about the book, which makes it great reading for the office or during ... Read More

  • Nature’s Path: A History of Naturopathic Healing in America by Susan
           E. Cayleff (review)
    • Abstract: The author of this masterful piece was stimulated by an idiosyncratic predilection for women’s studies and medical history. Focusing on the hybrid approach, she uses both documentary and non-documentary sources from what she refers to as “historical predecessors” of natural healing and treads the path of continuities and discontinuities, ambivalence and successes of the Naturopathic traditions from when it began to the twentieth century. This is situated within the socio-political transformations and the roles as well as the interactions of the Naturopath leaders with the external forces like the Allopathic physicians and the American Medical Association (AMA), as well as the persistent legal tassels that ...

  • The Black Radical Tragic: Performance, Aesthetics, and the Unfinished
           Haitian Revolution by Jeremy Matthew Glick (review)
    • Abstract: In his first book, Jeremy Matthew Glick provides a powerful meditation on dramatic, aesthetic interpretations of the Haitian Revolution in the theatrical productions of the twentieth century. Glick moves nimbly from texts by Eugene O’Neill, Sergei Eisenstein, Orson Well, C. L. R. James, Edouard Glissant, Jean Genet, and Lorraine Hansberry, taking into consideration the manner in which each author not only invokes the historic event that was the overthrow of the French Empire on the island of Hispaniola but also offers their own renderings of radicalism. For him, these plays are a “theater of ideas” (3), ones in which we see consistently contemplations on the relationship between an individual and the masses ... Read More
