Description

The Dutch scholar Rob Kroes argues that American culture is "modular, " continually fragmenting, disassembling, and reassembling itself - and in the process creating something new. In a series of topical essays that show why he is one of Europe's leading authorities on American culture, Kroes probes trends in American advertising, the image of the Vietnam war in American films, the implications of American vernacular culture as represented in rap music, and other topics.show more

Review quote

"The Dutch scholar [Kroes] textually almost chuckles as he writes of French fears of a 'cultural Chernobyl' with the arrival of Euro-Disney outside Paris. But, he adds, the French have also elevated American cultural forms to high art, from jazz music to B-movies to hard-boiled detective novels. Such European ambivalence is the stuff of his new book." -- The Chronicle of Higher Educationshow more
