Revolution and the Word remains the classic study of the co-emergence of the U.S. nation and the new literary genre of the novel. This expanded edition reframes this foundational study for the next generation of readers as it provides a new introductory survey and critique of the turbulent, controversial, and productive thinking in literary and cultural theory during the last two decades.

Praise for the previous edition: "Drawing on recent work in social history, post-structuralist literary theory and feminist studies, [Davidson] argues persuasively that the genesis of American fiction was an integral part of a widespread crisis of authority in early modern America.... A wonderful book."The Nation

"A fascinating and groundbreaking book."Philadelphia Inquirer

"Revolution and the Wordsophisticated, comprehensive and imaginativecharts this wilderness birthplace of American fiction and updates our notion of literary criticism in the process.... As remarkable for its methods as for its message."San Francisco Chronicle

"An engaging combination of information and analysis, Davidson's book on the production and readers of the early novel will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in the history of the novel, of reading, or of American literature."Library Journal
