Description

This title is winner of the Carey McWilliams Award given by "MultiCultural Review", 1999. In the modern era there arose a prolific and vibrant print culture - books, newspapers, and magazines issued by and for diverse, often marginalized, groups. This long-overdue collection offers a unique foray into the multicultural world of reading and readers in the United States. Interdisciplinary essays examine the many ways print culture functions within different groups; they link gender, class, and ethnicity to the uses and goals of a wide variety of publications; and they explore the role print materials play in constructing certain historical events, such as the Titanic disaster.show more

Review quote

"Each of the essays ... provide a fascinating insight into a field often ignored by media historians." -- Margaret A. Blanchard, Communications Bulletin Quarterly "Worth the price of admission is Wayne Wiegand's excellent introductory essay, which explicates in a few tightly written pages the panorama of scholarship on print culture that has appeared over the past three or four decades...A first-rate collection of essays that contributes greatly to our understanding of the role of books and periodicals created for and consumed by those outside the mainstream American culture... [An] excellent book." -- Edward A. Goedeken, H-Net Reviewsshow more
