American Culture is an anthology of primary, documentary texts of American civilisation using excerpts from speeches, political addresses, articles, interviews, oral histories, autobiographies, advertisements and song lyrics.
Edited by academics who are highly experienced in the study and teaching of American Studies across a wide range of institutions, this volume provides:
* a wide range of texts that introduce the students to various sides of American society in an historical perspective: its regions, immigration, social structure, ethnic groups, ideology, religion and popular culture
* primary sources of American life that students themselves can subject to cultural analysis and discussions in class
* linking text arranged thematically
* a means of seeing and understanding the ways in which language and culture are closely related, enabling students to integrate the study of culture and language and develop a combination of linguistic and cultural analytical skills.
