It offers a seeming contradition-American yet Post-Nationalist-as a remarkably generative theoretical standpoint for a series of sharp and challenging essays. All of these provide vivid readings of an unusually wide range of texts and the contributors give us real syllabi for real classes in which theory, close reading, and historical specificity have been put into the kind of classroom practice which is helping reshape not just an academic field of study but the understanding of what American might mean.-Paul Lauter, Smith Professor of Literature, Trinity College
