Review quote

Hsu and Kalter reveal these jingoistic tales to have been key cultural works in promoting the mesmerizing ideologies of patriotism. The superb interpretive and archival introductions, together with ample textual notes, vitally situate Hale's stories historically, and certainly make this volume an apt, authoritative first choice for students and scholars interested in the relationship of narrative to nation in the context of post Civil War imperialism. All told, this is a very smart and smartly presented edition, exemplifying the best of American cultural studies critique. -- Bruce A. Harvey, Director of Humanities Program, Florida International Universityshow more
