"Fascinating and provocative, this collection is sure to attract wide attention as the latest collective statement of the major directions in which `New Americanist' scholarship is heading."-Lawrence Buell, author of Writing for an Endangered World: Literature, Culture, and Environment in the U.S. and Beyond "The Futures of American Studies shapes a farsighted and richly provocative argument about the intellectual space, time, and politics of the cultures of American studies. It's a millennial work."-Laura Wexler, author of Tender Violence: Domestic Visions in an Age of U.S. Imperialism
